Each Year by janetb

Each Year

Each year the patch of humble violets at the pond grows larger, and that makes me happy. Dangling downward on bent stems, the beautiful blooms invite closer inspection; and this requires hands and knees. I consider it well worth the effort and eagerly begin my descent while wondering why they hang their heads as if to hide their beauty when a slight turn skyward could capture the glance and admiration of every passerby. I lift this one ever-so-slightly to admire its dainty details before gently releasing it to return to its natural nod. I conclude that the violets' humility makes them all the sweeter and then question: to pick or not to pick?
Lovely light and clarity in your photo of this pretty little violet! Fav
