"The light shines in darkness and the darkness comprehended it not...St. John 1: 5"

Light pink shines
Rising flower above
The lower red pod....
Reflecting its love
to bud and to God...

This may sound strange but I have never really looked at the bottom of a Peony bud at this stage of its growth before to notice the red pod underneath and how it reflects its darker shade on the lighter color. This is the only bud that is opening in that spot of the flower bed so far and maybe this is why I paid more attention to it today and saw it in a different light.

We had a lot of rain here yesterday and this afternoon another down pour.

Best viewed in light box! Thank you!

    Thank you Tiia...What I liked best about this image was the reflection of the pod on the
    bottom of the bud and the ant inside..
