“to see a world in a grain of sand,
and a heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.”

and here is a quote i came across while looking for another…

“all know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop”

this is the seedhead of a very small dandelion-like plant (i’m afraid i don’t know what it’s called). this one is a bit larger than the eraser on the end of a pencil… yes, these are very tiny drops!!! this was part of a series i took of the seed head as it opened over a period of an hour (10:54 am to 11:49 am). amazing what one can find in one’s garden!

if you’d like to see the progression along with a couple of other shots, go here
