Gusts

These tender little snapdragons were standing straight, until a day full of 50 mph winds. Now they're permanantly bent, but still beautiful.

I guess that's true of everything. If you're looking for beauty, you don't even see the flaw.

Stumbled across your blog and love your photos...especially the one with the rain on the window panes by the driveway. I signed up to follow you. Stop by my place and enjoy my spring photos and other musings. I'll be back! http://www.boomerpie.com/

What a lovely thought. ;^)
I love snapdragons...since I was very little when my mother planted some and showed me how to squeeze them and open their mouths.
