One Tiny Flower

posted by Sharon April 30, 2013 17 Comments

Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn’t room for any other thought. 
                                                                                                                  —  Sophie Scholl*

The yellow wildflowers are here! They grow in the hills, near the river. They seem to know how to set off their soft beauty as they bloom in bunches against the rock face.

You can spot them even from a distance in their little clusters. The yellow shows up nicely in all the spring green growing everywhere.

Spring brings beauty. So much, so many colors. Yet it’s true — one flower provides wonder enough to occupy our hearts completely.

Do you ever feel lost in the mass of folks in your world? Do you feel like you’re just one tiny person at your company, in your neighborhood, in the world of digital vastness? It’s true, in a way. But here’s a reminder that one tiny little flower is of infinite value. And so are you. You are a wonder!

Linking up with Little Things Thursday, Texture Tuesday, Sweet Shot Tuesdays,Tuesday Muse, and Communal Global.

Photos are edited with Kim Klassen’s texture Daisy and with Nancy at A Rural Journal’s texture Amy.

*Sophie Scholl lived only 21 years before she was killed during WWII. Her crime: distributing anti-Nazi leaflets. Her story is told in an excellent movie, “Sophie Scholl: The Final Days.” It makes me happy to know that in her short life she enjoyed the beauty of nature.

Those yellows are pretty. And the thought that goes with them is better still. Reminds me of a teaching I heard last week- “You are more than” just a mom, worker, good dresser, boss, etc… None of those things should be our identity.

That is a remarkable quote for your series of pictures. I do notice colors in nature more since I started focusing on my photography – and sometimes I become obsessed with seeking out what caught my eye in passing.

They’re so pretty! Yellow is such a happy color. I wish we have more wildflowers near where we are… My daughter would LOVE to pick some. We have a rule that she gets to pick only wildflowers… not the ones in pots or at the park.
