There’s been so much tragedy all over the world this week, I can’t even begin to express how badly I feel for the people involved. Instead, I’m going to try to bring a little light to my readers. Flowers! It’s finally spring, flowers are blooming, and there is beauty to be found in unlikely places. I challenge you to look for some beauty, as well.
I do not know what type of flower this is. They were very small, mixed in among the grass at Minuteman National Park near Concord, Mass.
Spent a couple hours wandering downtown Quincy last night, and made the above image of a magnolia blossom from a tree between City Hall and a small cemetery where many Revolutionary War soldiers are buried. The image below is from a cherry blossom tree in front of city hall, in the last light of the day.
I hope your day is blooming with beauty.
