I suspect nature has gone a bit wild... This is the blossom I would normally find in March and surely not in mid-October... The effects of climate change happening right before our eyes... how frightening!
We never look at the grass, though it is ubiquitous. If it's left alone to shake its hair loose it will produce tiny tassels and flowers, miniature and beautiful, that I'd never noticed before. Beauty is so often size and commotion for us, and fancy labels, that the subterfuge of loveliness all around us goes unseen.
