That's very beautiful, Lisa. If I didn't know better, I'd say you made that yourself.

So right, Lisa. If one took a closer look to what we consider "weeds"...
could discover tiny beauties. Your close up is exceptional!

great capture, Lisa. Nice big size here too.tu.

We had wild fennel in California and I always like to rub the leaves and smell the licorice.

Now we have bayberry (grows in wind swept sandy seashore locations) - I take the small hard fruit in winter and crush them.

Yes, beautiful indeed, but I'm hung up on the fact that you're coming into spring! My favorite time of year!
