“Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading.” 
― Kazuo IshiguroWithin the bounty of new spring growth, reminders of last year still linger along the trails. This Queen Anne’s Lace seed-head, once filled with seeds is now ‘spent’, it’s purpose fulfilled, yet it stands, dried and brown above the lush and greening  meadow.

While many of its neighbours have long fallen and been laid flat by winter snows, a few, like this one, stand as resilient mementos of the previous year’s bounty.

There was something about the stark appearance of this seed-head that prompted the photo, along with the splashes of green in the diffused background. It’s just one of those compositions that works.
