Beauty amidst the brambles.
Nymphaea lights the darkness.
A night time visitor lingers ’til daybreak.
Spore-bearing pinnae on the lower fronds give the name.
Soon to ripen into tiny nutlets.
Mountain laurel readies its declaration.
Soon to be blue.
An eastward gathering atop the granite.
A hemlock stump, with a side of acorns.
Jack-in-the-pulpit stands his ground.
