Yarrow, sweet yarrow. If your dainty good looks are any indication, appearance is important to yarrow flowers. For meticulous grooming you must rely on the kindness of strangers who feed on your sweetness in the golden magic hour before sunset. So you open yourself up to accept the actions of others, for whether they think highly of you or not, their actions are truly kind in their effect. Pollination by a honeybee is divine, but a visit from a couple of industrious ants can achieve nearly the same effect. Isn’t it wise to be flexible, to accept something different from what we might have envisioned, but will still reap us rewards in the end?
You looked upon us with such judgmental eyes yesterday, and yet I see that not everything is perfect in your world. Or perhaps, “perfect” is just the beauty of what “is”. Hmmm. That sounds like something worth pondering!
This life is a journey that follows a meandering path with many turns and side adventures. There is no “one way” or even a map that will lead us to our destination without variance and distractions. Many, many times I think the distractions and side trips are really the true north on our compass that guides us on our journey.
May you be groomed well dear yarrow, while you enjoy the attention of your companion ants. I hope for you a pleasant stay in the golden sunshine and in the dawn and in the hours in between.
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.
