Delicate Beauty

I was getting ready to go to my grandson’s wedding and I had a lot on my mind. I was thinking of my part in the service, providing music, but when I saw this beautiful work of art at the side of the driveway, I had to get my camera and get a picture.

I have long been attracted to the study of fungi, though I still don’t know enough about them to know which of them, in the wild, are really edible. Besides, a fungus like this one, species completely unknown to me, is so much more satisfying to look at and preserve it by way of photography than to eat it.

Not all fungi are beautiful, but many, as this is, are lovely in their delicate beauty and symmetry.

When I see the picture of this lovely fungus, I know this is odd, but, I am reminded of August 6 when Marlin and Kayla were married. May their marriage be as beautiful as this lovely work of art, and much more durable, –lasting a lifetime.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
