Nature’s Lace



As those of you who frequent this blog already know early morning is my favorite time of day. Beautiful sights not present at any other time reward those who rise early.

Today as I browsed through an overgrown meadow before the sunrise I found these tiny wild flowers which are about the size of a pencil eraser. As I looked closely at them I was awed by the delicate lace formed about them by the dew.

In my search for beauty I have learned to slow down and look closely. Beauty is everywhere!

Beautiful. That's a lesson for all of us. I need to slow down and look with different eyes.
Of course this morning my eyes did see something different. We are being envaded by ants. I awoke to some ants parading across my pillow and the night stand. That is not the kind of alarm clock I appreciate.

Good shot. I can't find my flower book at present, but I am almost certain it is called Spurge although
I think there is another part to the name such as "flowering",
