274/365: "Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us." ~ Boris Pasternak

274/365: "Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us." ~ Boris Pasternak
Today held two surprises for me when I went out to find my Picture of the Day. I made a bee-line to the mushroom I needed to reshoot today, looking forward to fixing the angle. Welcome to the Bad Surprise: I found only the stem. *groan* The rest had been wolfed down by some inconsiderate animal who was too impatient to let me take my pictures before eating it! Oh well, that will teach me to march back out and get the picture corrected right away instead of waiting until the next day! :D I wandered away, grumbling about rude wildlife when I noticed that there were some Grand Mullein plants growing here and there and I soon found my Good Surprise: one of them had a beautiful flower on the stalk!! Hooray!! The universe was back in balance and I had my Picture of the Day! :D

(I used a texture in the background from Jerry Jones: "Aborigine" .)

Boris Leonidovich Pasternak ( 10 February 1890 – 30 May 1960) was a Russian language poet, novelist, and literary translator. In his native Russia, Pasternak's anthology My Sister, Life, is one of the most influential collections ever published in the Russian language. Furthermore, Pasternak's translations of stage plays by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, Pedro Calderón de la Barca, and William Shakespeare remain very popular with Russian audiences.

Boris is only sometimes correct. After all, a heart attack is usually a surprise. But your floral surprise is lovely and well captured.
