Below My Feet

I'm finding that the older I get the more I am watching where I am stepping.  I am also finding that since my cancer treatments I am actually seeing more of what I am stepping on.   

   Last March during a trip to Branson, Missouri we took a tour of the trout hatchery.   I was still not very steady on my feet after a winter of chemo so I was watching the uneven ground in front of my feet.  I noticed I was stepping on lots of little purple flowers.

When I got down for a closer look with my macro lens I discovered the (supposedly) weeds (that were everywhere) were actually very pretty.

So sometimes it pays to watch were your walking.   


  1. They are pretty little flowers! I used to own a landscaping company, and when my youngest son worked for me, he said the weeds were just "plants out of place"...I always thought that was an interesting way to look at it!

  2. It really pays to looks more closely at the little flowers because they are just a lovely as the big ones. Your pictures are lovely.

  3. Wow, those are gorgeous little flowers. And may you think of them as your special carpet to make your journey a little easier to bear.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
