Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

I thought the circular patterns of rust underneath the peeling paint on an electrical pylon I came across the other day was quite unusual, so I stopped to snap a photo of it.  Convenient that the weekly photo challenge this week is unusual, so I can share the unusualness with all of you.  😉

Really though… why is the rust in circular patterns?

Don’t Be Shy

Don’t be shy

Lift up your eyes

Let your beauty shine

 

Like the sun

I found this lovely gem springing up between the cracks along the stairway outside my back door.  I didn’t plant it there, so my guess is that some of the black oil sunflower seeds that I feed the birds scattered there and sprouted.  What a delightful surprise!  I adore sunflowers and didn’t have a place to plant any this year, so I appreciate nature planting some for me in a place it saw fit – right out our backdoor, where we go in and out the most and can enjoy it’s beauty.

When I walked past it yesterday, I thought it looked like it was being shy with its head slightly tilted down, and its petals not yet fully opened reminded me of eyelashes.  I added a filter to this photo, which I never do, and edited it to give it a bit of a nostalgic feel, because that’s how I was feeling while looking at it.  I can’t wait until it “lifts up its eyes” and “let’s its beauty shine.” 🌻

 

May your day shine with beauty today, and with joy…

Keep the Light

all flowers keep the light”

These little lovelies were literally glowing along the riverbank as I rode past them on my bike the other day, it was a beautiful sight with them all illuminated en masse – I wish I could have fully captured the scene to share with you.  Anyone know what they are?  They sort remind me of a type of clover, but not.  Whatever they are, they charmed me with their sweet, luminous color.   🌸

 

May we too, keep the Light…
