Rise Up

This is a picture of a water lily that I took over the weekend at a famous garden locally. These flowers, and their cousin the lotus, have always facinated me. See the 'sun' in the middle of the flower? It looks like the way I used to draw a sun when I was a little girl. How perfect the symmetry that when this lily grows from the water bed, through the muck and the aquatic mire, then rises to the sky, and finally---OPENS-- its center looks exactly like what gives it life.

That's my inspirational thought of the day. Be like the lily.

I hope all your family, feet and flowers are okay and enjoy rather than suffer Wilma. Stay safe.

Thanks, Salt Water. It will be interesting, that much is for sure. My yard work will get done, too!
