It’s the solstice, so hopefully it’ll be a long, warm day. I took this photo recently of a field covered in buttercups – it was a radiant sight. They are another one of the common flowers that I think are sheer beauty. Or the violet – common, abundant, and sublime. Simple pleasures are often the most sweet. I love the patterns cast by light shining through moving water. I snapped this image a few weeks ago. I hope this long day is a good one for all of you (and the short day down below passes peacefully).
