Unexpected Beauty

July 17, 2011

 Recently, I took camera in hand wanting to capture beauty in an open field near our home. 
What intriqued and surprised me was that a thistle caught my eye....  just a weed.   


Unexpected beauty....
It is a gentle reminder for me to find beauty every day, even if it first disguises itself as a weed.

Wishing you a wonderful day, dear friends.

How beautiful Sheila!... I too just took a number of photos of the thistle on our Nature walk... you are lucky you got a little bug in yours too!... I think they are gorgeous and look at them as wildflowers, not weeds... stunning photos!... wishing you a beautiful day... xoxo Julie Marie
