small treasure

I like to make little bouquets of unwanted plants. Clover, grass (gone to seed), fresh dandelion.

Expired dandelion, past-bloomed blossom, pruned tree branch.

I usually just arrange them into a little presentation of color, admire the combination, then toss them up in the air and let the components fall, scattered. Usually I like the pattern they make when they land. If I don't, I will pick them up and start over. 

Sheer delight at finding a lady-bug. It always feels like a treat to see one. I especially love when they find me first and someone points them out on my shirt. It makes me feel special.

wooo, close one. Squashed lady bug is in the "three legged dog" category of sad.
