Bloom And Bud

bloom from mud and deep green depths
brightly sunward turns

Currently blooming in my southern New York State Garden, the Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum) is a bulb that can be found in many parts of the world. Considered a weed by some, it’s got to be tenacious to survive the jumble in my wildly overgrown perennial garden!

In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Single Flower or Bud, and Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bulb. Thank you Cee and Jennifer for the challenges!
