450.21 Little Sun

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. I hope you never tire of my little floral photos and poems. I stay home due to COVID so these little delights do delight me.

Wood sorrel is a weed, some say. I think it is simply a wild flower, and we’ve encouraged it in our garden and allowed it to spread throughout the lawn. Its five bright yellow petals are little suns smiling up at us, reminding us to enjoy the moment with their brightness. Whenever a new cluster blooms, we stop and smile, and today this little clump caused Scott to say, “Look at those lovely little yellow flowers.” I tried to include a close up of the lower flower which was the one most in focus in the image. You can see its clover like-leaves as well. It’s soft to walk on and, again, a delightful view in the yard.

Apparently, some people eat it, unless they have gout, arthritis, or kidney disease. [Wild Edible-Wood Sorrel; Fall Wildflowers of New England; North Caroline State Extension Service].

At night the little flowers and leaves close, as if time to sleep, waiting for the morning sun to awaken them so they can awaken our sense of beauty.

Little Sun

Little sun in green,
we invite your overflow brightening our lawn.
