making time for the small things

A visit to La Sumida Nursery, or anyplace where plants and flowers bloom, slows me down and allows me to look more closely at the small things. To see the miraculous faces in the microcosm of nature.

  1. The flower is really remarkable. Thank you for sharing

  2. That's a gorgeous photo.
    I once went to a butterfly farm in Massachusetts. I never realized a Monarch Caterpillar was yellow like that.

  3. Hello Joe,

    It's so nice to hear from you again. We see so many Monarch butterflies here in SB, but the caterpillars are a rare sight. I didn't know they looked like this either until I asked at the nursery.
