Julia Cameron has a great quote about art -- something about pink flowers and God, when I look it up I'll put it in here.
I think the point was that God, or the universe, or whatever you believe in must have wanted us to enjoy the world because he/she/whatever made hundreds of colours of pink flowers.
This is an image of a random poppy that
Steven took a few years ago. I don't know if I have a favorite flower, I
have flowers in my house all the time, because they please my clients. But the poppy is certainly one of
my favorites. This one grew from the tiniest seed that fell outside
the garden and bloomed in a crack in the concrete in this truly astonishing
colour. If you singe the ends of poppies you can bring them in as cut
flowers, but they only last about a day. In the garden they catch sunlight
and dazzle you with their glory.
Have a nature loving evening!
