NEW: Lavender Sea, a Cheer for Nature!
The Photo: Lavender Sea
When Katherine Lee Bates wrote her famous poem from Pikes Peak referring to “the amber waves of grain” she was reflecting on the great bounty that is immediately visible as a person stands on the top. Lavender Sea captures another frame of that bounty, visible in so many locations: gently rolling plains, mountain shadows, driveway entrances. Yet even with such a lavish splash of purple—it can be missed!
Emily Dickinson observed in 757:
The Mountains – grow unnoticed –
Their Purple figures rise
Without attempt – Exhaustion –
Assistance – or Applause –
What a thought. If the mountains can be missed—what of the waves of flora? Applaud the lavender sea?! And, I might thoughtfully add, the Creator behind it all.
Don’t miss the beauty around you! With that said, I am going to be taking a break from posting photos for a while so that I don’t miss the beauty around me as life gets a bit busier. But keep enjoying these photos and the world around you!
Lavender Sea is a photo that provides a touch of sheer delight in a card or postcard. You can order notecards, or photos here.
Bringing you the world,
