Blood-red


I can see a lot of Holy Friday symbolism in this helianthemum -- 
in all the weeds I almost didn't see that the flower had bloomed. 
It's barely more than an inch in diameter.

I'm so glad you found it and shared its beauty with us. A small gift from The Father.

the flower is stunning....frail and yet so powerful, such contrast of color and so humbly situated.

sweet vigil to you

Blessings to you, GretchenJoanna, as you celebrate the Easter season. This is a very beautiful flower...the smallest ones often have the most amazing details.
