Field of weeds

Hyde Park, ON
May 2014
Thematic. Cloudspotting. Here.
It's soccer season again, which means our daughter is back to defending her zone, harassing opposing players and taking no prisoners. It also means lots of evenings of sitting on the sidelines, cheering her on. It's a wonderful place to be - for her and for us - and we're already relishing the experience.

Well, maybe not so much this week, when the skies unexpectedly turned from warm and blue to cold and grey and threatening from the time we left the driveway to the time the game got underway. Keeping warm was somewhat out of the question, so I pulled out the smartphone during halftime and explored the weeds just beyond the pitch.

It's nice to know some things never change. And it's nice to know the world continues to serve up stuff worth looking at and thinking about, even if it doesn't necessarily merit inclusion on a magazine cover.

Your turn: Beauty is...?

I like that photo, Carmi.

P.S. Even dandelions have a porpoise!

Beauty is usually (for me anyway) to be found in unexpected places....
