Nearly Full Circle

As I walked the forest one evening, the Solomon's Seal along the path caught my eye. I wrote about them on April 29th, as their pastel leaves unfurled & tear-drop, white, blossoms opened. They are difficult to shoot as their blooms hang on the underside of the multi-leafed stems. They are sprinkled throughout the forest, as well as in my garden. Once supple & delicate, they now appear as wax. As I looked closer, I realized they have rich, indigo colored fruit, where once the blossoms hung. I reached out to discover they are firm & seemingly about to burst. Now I know just how they get sprinkled throughout the forest !
