Gossamer Threads


"The milkweed pods are breaking,
And the bits of silken down
Float off upon the autumn breeze
Across the meadows brown."

~ Cecil Cavendish, The Milkweed

I so love to come here and sit in your "study," listening to the enchanting listful music playing here. then to top it all off with lovely prose? Ahhh...

I love your moody mist painting and the clear milkweed photo. Makes me think that I should be more aware of small details that I otherwise would walk straight past.

It is a wonderful capture. I like playing with milkweed, helping them to spread their seeds.
