When looking at this simple flower, my writer’s mind creates a whole new world. Alien landscapes, a dystopian society, sparks to fire up so many possibilities in one small flower.
Does my writer’s mind miss the beauty that is just in the flower? Never, but it is while delving deeper into the essence of what makes it so beautiful that art is born.
I stepped outside after a pretty brutal thunderstorm, and as always it amazes me the resilience of plants to weather the storm. This rose took the moment to open up, and bloom.
of plants to weather the storm. This bud took that time to open up, and bloom.
The fair weather and additional rains we have been having are making all the flowers popping out to salute the bright sun.
“Don’t let the sun go down on me.” Funny how that song played through my mind as I was driving home with this view in front of me.
Stop and take a moment in your day to just enjoy the beauty of the world around you.
Prickly Pear Cactus Bloom
This Prickly Pear bloom is a bright sunny yellow. Perfect for this Monday.
A picture I took as the sky was clearing from a storm.
A photo I took in late summer of 2016. One thing I have to say is Texas has some glorious sunsets.
New blooms to welcome in the coming month. The flowers are blooming everywhere.

A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. ~William Shakespeare
Rose bush in full bloom. This is what I have to gaze at while writing.
The butterflies are back.
When I began taking pictures, my main reason was to capture the pretty lilac flowers. Yet I found it filled with butterflies already. This little guy(or girl) stayed still so I could capture its beauty. Not bad when you consider it was quite windy today.
The picture below is of another who posed for their portrait. Of course, the wind was not aiding me in the capture of this moment.
Beautiful colors. It was even more amazing in person.
