Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.
The world can seem like a rather dark and ugly place at times, so much so that I have tended to avoid the news of late, it’s just too distressing and depressing to hear or to watch. It’s at times like these that I turn to quotes from the wise including the delightful Dumbledore as he rightly suggested that ‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light’.
I was reminded of this quote today whilst out on our weekly jaunt with the dogs; we’d just finished feeding the ducks and I was walking back towards the square with a skip in my step and burgers on the brain when I spotted what I deemed to be beautiful flowers popping from the hedgerows. My Mum was quick to correct and to educate me, explaining that the wonderful white petals were in actual fact weeds that entwined themselves around plants.
Still, I found the pretty petals fascinatingly beautiful and I was reminded of Dumbledores ‘happiness’ quote and realised it didn’t quite fit as well as Eller Wheeler Wilcox’s wonderful words – “A weed is but an unloved flower”, and so here we have this weeks snapshot – an unloved flower.
