The Beauty in Snapdragons

The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. Joseph B. Wirthlin

It's important to take time to carefully observe and appreciate nature's beauty. 

Our children were captivated by the beauty and delicate nature of the flowers on the art table today. They liked the way the flowers changed colours and the top of each stalk dropped slightly to the side. 

Many spent time carefully observing and blending the paint colours so they were just right. 

Each painting a unique interpretation of what the children observed. Beautiful!
