When you look at this picture, what do you see? A dead flower frozen in a winter landscape? A seed-head holding the potential of new life? Winter food for the birds?
And here is how they looked this past August. How many new plants will grow from these seeds?
And here they are in the fall supporting life with the gift of seeds as food for these goldfinches. How many birds can you see?
And after a storm in December.
What do you think about the first picture now? Do you see anything different when you first looked at it?
