Where botanicals are concerned

Oh, yes, I am very concerned about botanicals. Nothing interests me more than flowers, and trees, and leaves, and grass, and herbs, and cacti...[breathe]... yes, I notice them alot. They're beautiful! We all know beauty when we see beauty. Right? What more can I say? Nothing. In fact, that's what beauty is ― wordless. Believe me, I know. Whenever I have to write a description about a photograph, it's just plain agonizing. I have such a hard time finding additional words to express how I perceive them. A whole gallery could be hung with my artwork and beside every single frame there would be the exact same description: A beautiful flower. No, wait, now and then a different line would pop up: A beautiful tree.

But, hey, it's not your concern how I describe botany. Our only concern, at this point, is whether you interpret them the same way. Confucius supposedly said, "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." BUT, I believe you can prove him wrong, and resonate with me by seeing it. So, feel free to dig in the garden a little deeper and peek at some of the beautiful flowers ― ops, sorry – by clicking on an item that appeals to you. You might also be pleasantly surprised to find out that I was able to write a little bit more on the subject than I've been able to convey here.
