#40 persistent beauty

040/365 persistent beauty, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Today’s Daily Shoot inspired me to look around me again, to find beauty on a grey day.

Franz Kafka said “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” Make a photo of something beautiful today.

It is a Finnish tradition to put pink Erica heather in our balcony and window boxes for the winter, as it is about the only flowering shrub to survive the arctic cold. This winter has been especially hard, but our tough heather has still retained most of its colour, even after fierce winds and blizzards. We pale and winter-withered humans could take a leaf out of the heather survival guide!
