I have put a variety of things in the trough over the years, and Water Hyacinth seems to work the best, even though it is usually decimated by raccoons...they seem to like it's crunchiness. For some reason this year they have left it alone and the other morning when I left the house to go for my morning walk the sun was catching the new blooms in such a way that I knew I had to try and capture their beauty. When I came home I immediately went in, got my camera and came out and took these photographs. Now of course they are gone...oh how fleeting are beautiful things, but happily sometimes they will return and grace us with their loveliness anew.
I hope that your day is full of beauty and loveliness too.
