It is tear-stained too. Fallen on the field path among the pignut flowers, a plant also known as Earth Chestnut, because its tubers were once grubbed up and relished by country children. And as for the heart? Eglantine. Sweet Briar. Dog Rose. Rosa canina.
If this image inspires anyone to a bit of storytelling in whatever form, and short as you like; then leave a link here so I can read it. I won’t be back in blog world until Saturday, so no rush.

What a beautiful photo. Enjoy your break from this addictive world!
Oh the wrench, leaving it behind for a bit 🙂
A beautiful, gentle image – so perfect. Thank you. Enjoy your week. Jane:)
And a good week to you too, Janet 🙂
The large version of his photo took my breathe away Tish! The drain a drop – (((with a hint of blue??? ))) made the water glisten and white/pink light up!
Nice take on pure.
Have a nice break – 😉
Had to Google pignuts as I have never heard of them – SO many umbellifers I am losing track of which one is which! I’d have put this down as cow parsley, but I shall look more closely at the foliage next time. I am intrigued as to how the nuts taste. And the image? Pure gold 🙂
I agree re umbellifer confusion. They are difficult to differentiate. And yes, pignuts, perhaps I need to do a little digging. We might be missing something on the food for free front 🙂
Sweet and engaging…
Ah, what a lovely sight for my morning eyes, Tish. I shall enjoy my breakfast even more now. Have a wonderful few days off.
Lovely photo, Trish!
Here’s a stanza inspired by the photo:
Beauty aside, my tears won’t lie
I lie on the floor waiting to die
Wonder if anyone would miss me
Or step on me and just walk by
I’ll be following your blog from now on. Have a great day! 🙂
Thank you for your thoughtful stanza Yousuf. I appreciate your picking up on this prompt.
You’re most welcome, Tish. Just thought I’d give it a go on a whim. Ended up refining the stanza and posting on my blog. 🙂
I’ll be over there later 🙂
I’d appreciate that, Tish.
As I’m bewitched, I might just do it.
You were bewitched. And then made more magic 🙂
How lovely this is, Tish.. What a gorgeous discovery. 🙂 ❤
Wow. So delicate and beautiful!
What a gorgeous photo and an interesting idea for a prompt.
Thanks, Suzanne. I like coming up things like this to and from the allotment.
What an exquisite photo for this challenge, Tish! Requires a very observant eye to discover these small treasures in the nature.
Effervescent comes to mind. 🙂 But then, I do have a funny mind. Take care, Tish!
Nothing wrong with your mind, Jo 🙂
