Heart of Mystery

An ornamental kale that to me, embodies the heart of mystery. Or said another way, the essence of Creation. Quiet, unassuming, and indescribably beautiful.

  1. such a beautiful colour combination Lynda !!!
    grats to you too on your creative award :)
    I tried the Saatchi Gallery but no luck.....I find the site (like stumble)....that slow that you need the patience of a saint....
    that's probably why I don't put my portraits there any more...
    I love your greyscale photo of the boats...
    and that lake and your text is stunning !!!!
    have a peaceful weekend :)

  2. The magic(k) of nature is so much more powerful and beautiful than the magic(k) of mankind... and I can't help but think of the plant faeries when looking at this! *soft smiles* -

    I'm loving your view of the world. It's amazing how much beauty is around us every day that we simply fail to see... for lack of taking the time to look.


  3. Oh Lynda I been here few times today, and everytime I look at this image I am just amazed how perfect it is and how nice it is, you just captured the nucleus of the whole universe. So to explain my visits, I have been assembling The Proudest Moment of My Life tag post, and I tagged you. I hope you don't mind. I really enjoyed putting it together, it really helps to reconnect, when you sometimes away from blogging due to other responsibilities. Beauty again, Anna :)

  4. Yes, it's very pretty. I have seen one in New Zealand. I took a picture of it too.

    Thanks for sharing the beauty of nature. It brightens up our day especially when we have bitterly cold weather now.

  5. Lovely... Beauty takes us unawares, making our ordinary lives extraordinary... (It just requires eyes wide open and the sensitivity to recognise it - you certainly have both!) Best wishes from Uruguay

  6. This has got to be one of my photographs of yours! I just love ornamental kale and you've captured its beauty perfectly, Lynda! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  7. Beauty Lynda!
    essence of creation in its layers of expression!

  8. Hi Lynda;

    My wife and I were just admiring the art here on your blog, you have some wonderful pieces. We also have a love of the creation (inspired by our love of the Creator).

    You may enjoy some of the photos on our blog Creation on the Blade (I’m not saying that as an “ad” but as a matter of common interest).

    I have bookmarked your blog for future visits…

  9. beautiful capture, wonderful colors. well done

  10. Hello Lynda,

    I must say that this is absolutely gorgeous! I have never seen anything as gorgeous as this :)!

    You are indeed a gifted artist (blogging is leading me to incredible photo artists: thank God!): congratulations :)!

    I looked at this pic and thought "wow, if I could only grab that and take it home, and put in my room" transmits a sense of peace :).



I try to respond to comments whenever I can. I ALWAYS appreciate your visits and friendship, and I will reciprocate with visits to your site. Thanks for sharing parts of your blogging journey with me. I value each and every one of you.

NOTE: Please, no more memes, schemes, or awards. They're fun and they may help us to know each other better, but I'd rather spend the time reading your posts and having you READ mine!

Happy blogging!
