Today I took a walk, and at one intersection, I noticed a tree had budded, small green buds breaking out at the edges of one branch.
I thought about snapping a picture, but didn't think it was that noteworthy and I crossed the street. When I got to the other side, I looked down and noticed a beautiful purple flower at my feet.
It was part of a cluster of flowers. I whipped out my phone, looking forward to trying out the macro controls. I got some near and far shots. I tried to catch the setting sun hitting the petals.
I snapped several shots, then noticed another, even more beautiful group of newly awakened flowers. So I shot them too. They were delicate tri-petaled flowers with inexplicably leopard like spots on each petal.
And, as I put up my phone, I looked up and saw that the whole lawn in between the sidewalk and the street had little newborn flowers sprinkled randomly all over.
I didn't shoot the whole lawn though. Instead I walked back to my favorite coffeehouse and wrote this out.
