Insignificant,

perhaps…. but in the final analysis, aren’t we all? I was unable to find an ID on these little ones and that’s a shame for they are quite pretty.

This one is growing in a pond: that’s open water behind the blossom, several feet deep, and the small bloom appears as a little fleck (1/4 – 1/2 inch) of yellow just above the surface.

Almost completely hidden in the tall grasses and cattails along the edge of the pond, on single stalks about three feet tall, the 1/2 inch blossoms of these little flowers are a beautiful sight for those who choose to approach and look closely at them.

Often the real treasure is found among those of insignificance.
