Life Lessons


This colourful photo caught my eye recently and I thought how beautiful the buds and flowers are. The photo was taken by Natalie Scarberry (Texas, USA) and the plant is in her own garden. Natalie let me know a few hours ago that this is a Red Yucca.

Natalie combined this photo with some equally fine text (below).

Sometimes painful…

  1. Truly beautiful combination of vision and voice. It’s funny, the photograph is so soft and rich in colour and yet, maybe it’s just may twisted imagination, but there is a certain resemblance to barbed wire in the form of the branch than bloom that I feel is also echoed in the reference to the words ‘sometimes painful’.

    1. You’re spot on, very perceptive! I had noticed in the photo there appears to be a wire running through as a horizontal element behind the spiky buds giving rise to the appearance of barbed wire. That had struck me too! and I like how you’ve made the connection with “painful” in the text. So interesting! Thanks Dami!

    2. Hi again dear Dami. Natalie told me that she loved the idea of her photo looking like barbed wire and of you connecting it to the word “painful” in the quote 🙂 As I’ve said before, I love the way you see things!
