Algae on Pond

We don’t usually think of the algae that sometimes covers the surface of a stagnant pond as beautiful.

In fact to call someone “pond scum” means they are the lowest of the low. It is quite an insult.

But you know what?

When you look closely, it’s quite beautiful.

All those swirls and whorls. And  green that is stunning.

Really stunning.

Yet again, the natural world has reminded me that when I open my eyes, and my heart, there is beauty all around me.  And yes, sometimes in the most unusual places.

We live in a beautiful world!
