Am I The First One Here?

As many of you may know I normally try to relate the weekly PhotoHunt theme to the general subject of the blog which is the pond. This week's theme is 'colorful' and I had several ways I could go. After all, nature is full of color. I looked through several of my photo's and found it was hard to pick just one.

Then I happened upon this photo. Somehow it just seemed to fit. It was one of the first flowers to bloom on this plant around the pond this year and foretold of many more to come. It's not a bright, showy type flower that you see so often featured on blogs. It is just a small wild flower that is often brushed aside as inconsequential. Yet its seemingly small simplicity holds within it the complexities and colors of life.


I don't have a little tutorial or nature lesson for this week. I think I'll just let the little flower speak for itself.

  22. It is very suprising how pretty small flowers can be when you stop to really look at them. I also wonder what this flower looks like to a bee... Often white flowers have patterns that are only visable in the ultraviolet.

  31. Thanks for stopping by. That "hippie" sign cracks me up too; I used it for my very first PhotoHunt when the theme was "funny/unique signs." I had two photos that day:

  32. Thanks to all of you for the visit and kind comments. I always try to make a return visit to those who comment and if I missed any I apologize.

    We hope to see you again next week for 'wrinkled' though I have no idea what I can come up with around the pond that is wrinkled, lol.

    And a special thanks goes out to Moziesme for the award. It was much appreciated.
