Something I Saw Today

It's easy to get discouraged by modern life. People disappoint us, society is uncaring. But when we're blue, we need to remember that there also exists beauty in the world. Real, pure beauty.

I saw this walking through my hometown today. I was struck by its utter pulchritude.

  5. Spectacular and yet the petals have begun to curl. I believe this is an hibiscus. They only remain open for a day. Be here NOW.

  13. Thanks for sharing the beauty you see Ally.

    I went for a walk in a park in Greenhithe, Auckland, New Zealand recently and decided to take a photo of all the flowers I saw (even the weeds were pretty!!!!) and it made me see again how important it is to be present in our lives and look for the beauty all around us.
