Mundane Monday · Photographs

Dead and Alive…

Mundane Monday challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.


I found this flower as I walked the pavement.

Though it had weeds trying to share its space, it still stood out.

Even the dried one’s had something  beautiful about them.

They’ve lived. It’s time to go and make space for another bloom.

Possibly, their pollen will help do the job of propagating more beauty elsewhere.

  1. Beauty is in every flower, recently I commented on my wild garlic which grows beside the stream at the end of my garden, “This smells beautiful that is when it’s best picked, and when it flowers it looks like white stars.”

  2. My friend said “but it is weed elsewhere, a nuisance plant.” I love evening primrose but many people think it is a weed. So maybe all weeds are someones blooms. Sorry to post my comment too soon. Thank you for your photo and post. Have a good Easter Monday.

  3. Yes, the weeds are mostly wildflowers! They killed all the Monarch Butterflies in the U. S. by spraying roundup everywhere, and the bees are almost gone, and even sadder, the souls that notice and care have almost disappeared.

    Yesterday, I had no Easter gift for the old Mum, but then a little blue flower, the first of the spring, appeared in the yard, right on Easter morning, out behind the shed. The rule for picking flowers is that one must either be a girl, especially a young girl, or at least the young girl within, or, one must pick them for a girl, especially in courtship, but also for Mums and grandmums.

  4. Thank you for another thought provoking post. I have never liked the term “weed.” A climbing rose on your tomato stake would be a nuisance, therefore a “weed.” How many of us have, at one time or another, been a “weed” in someone’s concept of the perfect human garden.


  5. Gorgeous :). I like to find beauty in the smallest things. For ex, we have a little river in front of our building and I like to go there and listen to the sound of the water, I love it so much. Or the sound of the chirping birds.


  6. I like the contrast and the philosophy that went along with the picture. You have seen more than just some flowers in that garden! Good to have you back on MMC 🙂


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
