Spared and Alive

It's hard to tell from these photos, but the strip of grass between the sidewalk and the perimeter fence of Arlington Cemetery was recently mowed. The person who do this, however, has a soul. He or she managed to perfectly trim around these wild flowers (or are they weeds?) leaving them intact for the world to enjoy.


The photo below is of the same plants as above, though shot in the relatively early morning (around 6:20am). I love how the flowers have closed up for the night. It's a wonderful reminder that these plants are truly alive and react to the weather like you and I; they are not merely inanimate objects.
