The Black Eyed Susan

The Black Eyed Susan is a spectacularly beautiful flower. Add hundreds of these cone flowers to a landscape, and prepare for a vision that will forever be etched into your memory. In my life, I cannot count how many times I have truly been taken with a landscape laid out in front of me. What I can say though, is that these moments usually involve flowers and clouds.

Flowers add that certain ‘something’ to a landscape.

My mind boggles at the thought of our planet without flowers. We need hope and courage to blossom into the species we could be. We should emulate flowers.

Viewed as a whole, a field of flowers is rewarding in its own right. But when time is taken to observe each individual flower, the reward is greater still. Just take a look at the flowers below. Images don’t do them justice.

Not many words for today–some days are best spent in contemplation and comfort (today–finally some cool weather and cloudy skies. I cannot wait for fall to arrive!)

Until next time, get outside and experience your own beautiful moment…wherever you may be.
