Sometimes I don’t see a picture right away, but when I look closer, the possibilities appear.
That’s what happened here.
This tiny shrub has not yet begun to bud with new growth. It is dry and still looks as though there is little hope for its survival. It is not known yet whether it will flourish into another season.
And yet, there is beauty here. These tiny papery blossoms, left over from last season, are still pretty.
