Finding The Sun On A Cloudy Day

 

 

Rainy Split Rock Weekend 453

 

In all her intricateness and fragility, Queen Anne’s lace endures the heat until her season is done. And such is life.

She dries, withers, and curl into a ball. Her true beauty reigns beneath lacy blooms and fern-like leaves. She’ll be back next year in all her glory. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait until next year…the sun will shine for us tomorrow.

There are times our souls need a lift. We simply need the reminder to open our eyes. It is then we see the daylight and feel the warmth in our hearts.

  1. Queen Anne’s lace is still going strong in our area with curled up green buds ready to unfurl their lace. Each phase has a beauty all it’s own. Thanks for the reminder.

    Suzi, you are so spot on about that!

    I always love your references to nature.

    Btw, that photo is faaaaaaaabulous!

  3. I would never have recognized that as Queen Anne’s Lace. I guess I’ve never seen “her” at the end of her prime.

    Here’s to giving ourselves a LIFT!

  4. Ah, poor flower. So sad to see them like that — bet they wish somebody would cover them up with a brown bag so they didn’t have to show their not-so-pretty side to the world!

  5. The Queen Anne’s Lace looks like that here too. There is a private field behind our house that is mowed 3 times per late spring/summer and it amazes me how fast the wild grasses and flowers bounce back. Resilient they are.

    • They are resilient. Seems like all the wildflowers in the fields near my parents grow much better than my gardens. Perhaps I should let mine go about on their own!

  6. I have a few volunteer Queen Anne’s Lace in my yard – my favorite wildflower as well as my favorite way to have them – unexpected and where they don’t exactly belong.
