WeedImageoftheDay

Lie Down


Heavy with Rain

We laid down today under the weight of the rain. We’d rather be standing up straight and tall, proud and slender, uplifted and fluffed by sun and breeze. But the rain is good even though it is heavy. We need the rain to fall upon us in order to stand tall so we will carry our burden with folded grace. There is deep strength in submission. Oh, yes.

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.

  1. This is such a moving photo… such emotion attatched to a simple rain and some wet grassy weeds but beautifully executed! I love this photo!

      Thank you Polly! I sincerely appreciate your kind words. I love being surprised by the moods of the simple things around me. Nature is trying to teach me so much.

  2. I like the raindrops that you captured, I enjoy how plants looks just after a rain shower

      Thank you Kris. I love how things look in the rain and just after as well. Everything is so refreshed and renewed. Thanks for stopping by!
