I walk through my herb garden looking for winter beauty.  Though it has been a mild winter here and I should not complain; still I long for spring to arrive.

The beauty of the dried chive seed heads capture my heart.  Photo taken a mild January day 2012.

I read that Romanian Gypsies have used chives in fortune-telling. It was believed that bunches of dried chives hung around a house would ward off disease and evil.

brown diamonds

I went walking through my herb garden looking for something inspirational.

The sculptural beauty of the dried

seed head from my Echinacea plant caught my eye.

My macro lens captured the diamonds at the center on a warm January day in 2012.
