With Chronic Lyme disease, your world becomes very small, but no less beautiful. Well, except when I go a week without washing my hair or the meds make me toss my cookies. That part is not so pretty.
Check out the Scarlet pimpernel, a wild flower, sometimes considered a weed, growing all over Santa Cruz Mountains. At only 14 mm in size, it’s easy to overlook these incredibly detailed little devils. The naked eye sees just an orange tiny flower. But up close, the intricacies are mind-boggling!
Flowering from May through August, they’re known to predict time of day and weather. Opening at 8 am and closing at 3 pm. It’s closed in humid or damp weather.
The Scarlet pimpernel also known as the emblem of the fictional hero who rescued people from the guillotine during the French Revolution.
Bigger isn’t always better. Small can be extraordinarily beautiful.
