When Beauty is All Around

Too often when we’re continuously  surrounded by beauty, or anything else, we become inured to its existence.  I remember a college psychology course that taught how the brain refuses to accept stimuli if that stimuli is too long unbroken.  I’ve thought of that lesson many times since then.

For reasons I can’t explain, this morning when I stepped out into the yard I noticea a flower that I hadn’t noticed before.  Then another one.  And another.  Here are just a few of the flowers in our yard this morning.
