Day 180 — Wild Chickory — Finding Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty comes in the form of pale blue chickory and queen Anne’s lace growing along the roadside. Seeing these really let’s me know that summer is upon us. It reminds me of hot summer walks, searching for fossils and pretty stones. It reminds me of raking dry itchy grass on a sunny afternoon and sharing an slushy with my sisters when finished. It reminds me of crickets chirping and flashing lightening bugs. When I see the wild chickory I see my childhood and smile.
