Look at this sweet lamb’s ear.
Unfiltered. As in unfiltered photo.
Sweet, soft leaves standing firm against the autumn wind.
Blooms that beg for a touch. They are a beautiful color that only nature could provide.
A touch, a pluck of a leaf.
Confirmation of hopeful softness, justifying the plant’s name.
Confirmation of soft strength still left in the world.
Strength does not always come in roaring, it’s valor pinned to it’s sleeve, a loud trumpet heralding it’s arrival.
Sometimes strength shows itself in the quiet, like the soft leaf of a sweet lamb’s ear plant. Hardy, bendable, low to the ground to better withstand the seasonal winds. And thrive.
