'One ringie dingie'


Found inside the knobbly pod of a milkweed plant, while walking at Clare's Well.
They're so silky and make me think of angels just about to spread their wings.

Isn't nature wonderful. And what a great camera you must have to get such a clear close up.
Beautiful!

Love it Kathleen... as well as the saying from Tomlin: both perfect.

Seeds are so cool. All that life packed in there just waiting to come out. Little silky strands attached to catch the wind.

Love the way your mind works. Starting the day with the newspaper and computer, a wonderful face staring at me in the notices and up pops your powerful interpretation.I should try a labyrinth right now, even in the rain.
