A little jewelweed in the evening sun.
This is one of my favorite late summer/fall flowers. You can find it in 2 colors – yellow and orange. The juices from its stem are a natural combatant to poison ivy and the leaves turn a silvery color when submerged in water. (Droplets of water can collect on the leaves making them look like they are covered in tiny jewels.) It shoots its seeds with little built in catapults. Pretty amazing for something that doesn’t look like much.
Life is full of beauty. Feel the wind, smell the flowers and admire the insects. Never underestimate the power and beauty of something small.
