The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath,and buyeth that field.....St. Matthew 13: 44

What is revealed
In a weedy field
Might be a treasure
Hidden in disguise,
For our pleasure,
To see the butterflies.
Poetry by me, AJP

When My husband and I were going for our walk this morning, the weeds in the gully section of the field across from our driveway caught my eye...The field belongs to Land Developers who built new houses on the other side ....On the level end of the field, a farmer paid rent to plant his Soybeans. The people whose houses face that side have a different view than the homeowners who see the weeds in back of their house.... I personally believe we have the best view of all when the Monarch butterflies flit past us on our walk, to interact with the weeds in the gully.. It is all in the eyes of the beholder ...

    You have prettier weeds than we do!! Not as many butterflies, but a LOT more snakes! This is great thought too about their POV.

    We saw a video Don, about a man who lived with a clutch of wild turkeys whose mother had
    abandoned the nest and as he followed these turkeys around, they discovered a half dozen
    rattle snakes every day whereas before without them he only saw 2 or 3 snakes a year...

    Weeds can be beautiful and they attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Nice shot and info on the photo.
