Simple Beauty

It's hot!  I see more brown patches in my yard each time I mow.  My pond is lower and there's almost more algae than water.  It's August.  Once the heat of the sun has passed over my house, I like to visit my pond in the backyard.  I don't know why.  It's pretty much the same scene every day and, at this time of year, there's not much beauty like there is in the newness of spring.  That was my thought anyway until I saw these...

the soft brown, former blooms of Queen Anne's Lace. 
Today, they struck me as something of beauty...a simple beauty.  I knew when I clipped the blooms, they would look great in an ironstone pitcher.  I like the softness of the browns, grays, and white.
