“Tatting is a type of vintage lacework.” 

I spent part of this morning at the pond in Mt. Pisgah Arboretum  looking for and hoping to find water lily in bloom.  They are just starting and not very abundant but it mite be worth a trip back as it is a nice walk in there.  The pond is becoming very overgrown and it will not surprise me to see it fill in over the next few years.

As I walked back up the trail I came across the image below.  It is a stacked image (16 individual shots) and for some reason the delicate structure of the plants brought to mind tatting.  Nature’s handiwork.
