Tiny Pink Wildflower

Deptford pink wildflowers are easy to overlook because of their tiny flower size.  (About the size of a dime or smaller.)  Had I been looking for something special or bold, I probably would have missed this flower.  I always see and experience more when I take in the wholeness of everything around me, rather than searching for that “perfect” or “special” thing.

Days like this make me wonder:  How much of life do we miss and how many things do we overlook because we are so focused on those one or two thoughts?

  1. These used to pop up in odd corners of our yard – especially if my husband forgot to cut the grass. I never knew what they were, just was so surprised by how delicate & pretty they were. Thanks for identifying them.
