Travel Theme: Simplicity


I didn’t travel far for this week’s travel theme, hosted each week by Ailsa.   Nor did I have to click my heels together three times to find simplicity in my own backyard.

Simplicity: Lotus Bud

Simplicity: Lotus Bud

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin”.

But flowers aren’t really that simple are they?   Look closely to see nature’s complexities.   Those small white dots are small spider eggs – a portrait of nature’s glory: interdependent, simple, beautiful.

Below is a different edit of the same photo because I couldn’t leave well enough alone.  Tomorrow perhaps the lotus will bloom and I can observe again the simple and the complex in the bloom of a flower.

Have a photograph that represents Simplicity?  Join the fun:  post it and link to Ailsa’s blog, Where’s My Backpack.  Here are links to just a few who are participating this week:
