“I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it – or my observation of it – is temporary?” ― John Green,
More information on this flower (Source):
Mistflower grows to 3 feet high, but often lower, with leaves opposite, somewhat triangular in shape, and bluntly toothed. At the top of the plant the branches, with their short-stemmed clusters of flowers, form an almost flat top. Disk flowers are bright blue or violet, about 1/4 inch long. There are no ray flowers.
Blue Mistflower attracts bees and butterflies. However, this wildflower spreads quickly and can become a pest.
I did my homework this time to find the information on this wildflower, Mr. Steve! Thanks for the motivation. Cheers! Hope you like this portrait.

My journey through the Himalayan roads on a chilly winter day became even more enjoyable and beautiful, thanks to ‘our’ amazing Sun.
Hope you admired the sun as much as I did.

The snowfall is the most quite of all, but even the river goes silent in the winter compared to its late summer or monsoon avatars.
“In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.”

I’ve posted many one-leaf-portraits before (you can find some of them here and here) and today is about another two leaves. A different place, a different time, and of course two different leaves (at least in their respective time-scale). But they are stuck, which I think is kind of better than just lying anonymously on the ground. I like to think about the probability of falling leaves getting beautifully stuck on a wired-fence in a haphazard manner. Think about it for a moment.
It’s like natural decoration even after leaving the tree. Cool, isn’t it?

Looking at this leaf so intricately stuck on this pole, I was wondering how fierce the wind had to be for this to happen, …or did someone deliberately put it there? I might never be sure which was the case, but with a brilliant blue sky and a mountain top in the background I had to capture it.
Happy March, everyone!
