Um, No, not really....
Yeah. Had a hard time with this week's prompt "Beauty All Around." If you have been following my Focus on Life posts for the past 14 or so months, you might have noticed that I usually have no trouble finding beauty. But for this week, I wanted to capture some natural beauty in my environment.
But you know that time between full on winter, and balmy spring? We call it Mud Season. Some years it would be over by now. Not this year. I refuse to illustrate Mud Season.
But I did get out there and searched for beauty. It was not easy.
I got scratches. I had to look down. I had to walk in mud. And snow, and muddy snow. But near a small brook that drains off a natural spring, which sends up liquid water all winter...I found some rather fragile beauty.
|Would you believe - skunk cabbage?|
|And some more skunk cabbage|
|Mossy rock in the water|
|Tiny ferns growing out of the moss|
Let's see what beauty other people have found.
