Ray Of Hope In An Open Field

AN ABUNDANCE of construction is happening around my neighborhood where old homes and trees have been brought down to make way for the new. I noticed this flower on a large soon-to-be-developed property. It seemed to pop up out of nowhere like a burst of sunshine.

It injected a ray of hope into the open field and into my morning. It is somehow comforting to see that despite devastating events sleepy seeds are quietly stirring and full of potential to suddenly sprout and grow.

  1. What energy there was in that lone seed, to find nourishment where little existed, and to break through the ground where perhaps others failed. Then, you came along, noticed its beauty and brought it to us. The perfect sequence of events to bring light into my morning, even before sunrise. Thank you, Penelope!

  4. I hope the new construction will be sympathetic to your environment. Meanwhile, it's wonderful to enjoy the beauty of a surprise sunflower.

  5. I really love sunflowers, they are big brilliant flowers that are not shy about showing off their beauty.... and they follow the sun where ever it goes. Natures optimists. Hope you have a great day. :)

  6. A tiny seed, when it falls in the dirt, great big flower blooms. It’s so wonderful that smiles like the flower roll out in peoples’ eyes when they find the flower.

  7. Oh we are also having areas of woods taken down to add in homes and little strip malls and it is so sad. I would have been thrilled to find with piece of sunshine. I hope it can seed and come up in many places. Thank you so much for joining into this week's Nature Notes...I enjoyed your post.. Michelle from Ramblingwoods.com

  8. it's always so sad to see woods chopped down to make way for buildings. It's amazing though what seeds will then sprout up...
