Winter Wildflower

Beauty can be found in all seasons.

Here in the northeast it's still chilly.
 I see daffodil leaves peeking out of the ground in my front yard.
While waiting for spring flowers to arrive,
I thought I'd share a photo I took at Lake Minnewaska.
To me this winter wildflower is just as pretty as any spring bloom.
I love the textures.

Sometimes we just need to take the time to look a little closer.

Hope you're having a good week!

Love the bokah in the background Lynn!

That has great texture, I love the dried up flowers, too. It's certainly better than nothing, isn't it. Everything is under several feet of snow here, still.
Hugs, Cindy

To be able to see the subtle winter beauty in dried flowers is a gift. Also, the quote from Picasso on your sidebar is one of my favorites. I'm visiting from "A Favorite Thing".

Dear Lynn
How lovely to meet you at Claudia's party and thank you for visiting my blog!
I agree that is a beautiful wildflower, I can imagine a large vase of them would be stunning.
I've pressed some Queens Anne's Lace flowers from my garden and I can't wait to see how they dry.

Oh Lynn, you do see the beauty in all things, don't you? There is even beauty in a flower that hasn't blossomed yet, as it is getting ready to bloom. I noticed your tulips below too, they are so pretty. Have a nice weekend, and I really enjoy seeing your delightful pictures. Thank you.

You're quite right about the importance of taking the time to look,Lynn. This is a beautiful photo.

Very pretty! If we look closely and notice the smallest details we can always find beauty. Best wishes, Tammy

Mary said...

I love flowers, especially wildflowers. They often look their best when the blooms have faded and present wonderful photo ops! This one is lovely.

Happy weekend - hope it's full of 'favorite things'.

Big Hugs,

What a gift to find beauty in all things. I love dried flowers and always have something drying. My favorites are hydrangia at the end of summer. Blessings

Its so exciting to see something emerging from the ground, isn't it? I feel so at one with the garden in that moment. Pretty picture.

Debra @ Homespun said...

Its a beautiful photo! : )

Claudia said...

Lynn, that is one gorgeous photo. I feel the same - I love the look of flowers that have turned brown and are part of a winter landscape. Thanks so much for joining in this week!


Kara said...

Beauty! For those of us who live in colder climes we learn to see beauty in the simplicity of a past bloom standing out starkly against the winter sunshine. daffodils and crocus are shooting up in our gardens as well.

Just a little addition to my earlier comment: thank you for participating in Sunlit Sunday this week, Lynn!

This wildflower is gorgeous. And the bokeh! Wow! Great texture and beauty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...easy to find if only one will look. A good lesson! Thank you! Happy Sunlit Sunday!

Lorrie said...

What a beautiful photo. The dried flower in the sunlight displays such elegance. Love it. Happy Sunlit Sunday!

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...
