Day 24

Such a humble flower, yet it feeds the butterflies
with the nectar from these beautiful blooms, and then
in the fall develops unique pods that dry and
eventually split open so that the beautiful gossamer
seed wings inside can fly out into the world.

If you would like to see to see more of my work,

Beautiful painting, once again, Claire. I don't know if I've ever seen these, but they look like a pretty flower.
