A Trace of light rationing

Another flower shot from my walk along the Trace in Mandeville one Saturday recently.  Even in the bright afternoon sun, sunlight is a precious commodity along the shadowy lane that weaves from Mandeville to Abita Springs.

Iron fence, rusted future

Those old cast iron fences that stand sentinel along the streets of New Orleans, have a hard enough time beating off the elements in good years, but add to that hurricanes, and several storms and  dozens of years, and the years start to take their toll.  The flaky paint seems to be holding the rust in as much as it is hold the moisture out.  But this fleur del lis stands strong, even if it doesn't still stand straight.

A Trace of beauty

I stopped for a moment along the Trace in Mandeville and notice a simple white flower in the sea of green trees, vines and bushes. I think I often miss little treasures like this.
