September Allium

Inside their delicate white packages, decorated with thin green stripes,

tiny florets of allium waited patiently for the right moment to break their bonds...

and reach toward the sunlight.

One small flower opened today, and the package, no longer necessary,

will soon be discarded.

Stand and consider the wonders of God.

Job 37:14

What a beautiful series this is Connie. I do not think I've ever seen them in their little packages!

Thank you so much for sharing this at the Creative Exchange.

I love your photos and the sequence of growth and change. I really enjoy doing the same, most recently with poppies.

Your background and focus on the last two is wonderful.

You make me want to come and visit the Ozarks! But somehow I think you'd find beauty anywhere you are.
