They tend to grow in bright little patches by roads or in open fields. A brilliant display of God’s handiwork. Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these jewels of the field (Matthew 6:28, 29; Luke 12:27). As an artist I rejoice and praise The Artist for His gifts of such fine beauty!

Here’s a couple quick links to learn more about the plant and see more pictures if you’re interested:

I’d love to hear if you’ve seen these little treasures growing in your area — wherever you are in the world.
