Who Has Lost This Small Pure Heart?


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.

  1. 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 – 😉

  2. 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 🙂

    1. 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 🙂

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. What an exquisite photo for this challenge, Tish! Requires a very observant eye to discover these small treasures in the nature.
