Making Do


The Highest Spot

Weed Perch

As I freely soared in the sky I looked for a tree, something substantial upon which to rest. All around me though the trees were scarce, but there were weeds aplenty and so on this one I did alight. It accepted my weight and once I’d settled my feathers my weed perch seemed to grow straighter and stronger, perhaps just a bit proud to have been chosen and deemed worthy. So I think this spot will do nicely for a rest and a look around. We are just fine together – my gray weed and I sway together in rhythm with the breeze, partners in a simple, impromptu dance.

This is the way serendipity happens. I thought the answer to my search would be a sycamore or a cypress. but I have found it here in this weed. Perhaps the weed as well was hoping for a loftier bird, perhaps a hawk or a raven, but here we are today, making do and just fine. Alighting on a weed is divine!

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.

    Thank you Jane! I wish I could have gotten closer, but birds have a way of flitting away suddenly, so I’m glad I got this shot at least!
