Unexpected Beauty

Umbrian summer herbs

How often do we notice and admire the beauty of common parsley?  Its raw-toothed leaves with their lace-like webbing…

Umbrian summer herbs

or the graceful symmetry of its spike-like late summer flower – such beauty in a humble herb…

Umbrian summer fruit

or the amazing beauty of a lone voluptuous summer fig with its plump smooth skin, enticing shape and dainty white flecks?

If we simply take the time to “see”, we will find endless beauty in unexpected places!
