“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. “
– John Muir
Simple beauty will suffice for me. In this case, a brightly coloured Box Elder beetle, one of many insects partaking in the bounty of nectar within this patch of Canada thistles I’m spending a lot of time with.
Soon, they will fade and go to seed and other plants will dominate, but for now, I’m finding beauty aplenty right here.
