The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field...
St. Matthew 13: 44

I couldn't help but notice this beautiful decomposed rhubarb leaf yesterday and instead of posting it then, I reserved it to use for my SP today. You cannot put a price tag on nature and the treasures that we find here on earth are without measure. Speaking of price tags if you observe closely you can see one poking out of my sleeve...I did not get a chance to snip it off before I did this self portrait and thought I could hide it up my sleeve...As I mentioned earlier, this outfit was one of the good finds that I bought at a Second Hand Store for 99 cents over the weekend but I had to really search through the junk to find the good treasure. I decided to use this for the decay theme since the rhubarb leaf is definitely decayed and the asparagus behind me has gone to seed.

    Min, nature provides excellent material to photograph but we just have to find it...some things are right in front of our eyes and other treasures we have to look for.
