Day 243: Beauty

Day 243: Beauty, originally uploaded by susanvg.

I just finished reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. One theme that kept coming up was the importance of stopping to appreciate beauty - those moments are what makes life worth living. That beauty could be a flower, a friendship, a cherished book, whatever it is that makes you stop and go ah!

I have always loved tuberous begonias - their vibrant colours, the two kinds of flowers growing side by side. They just brighten up a garden with their showy blossoms. So I stopped for a moment of beauty and I share it with you.

  1. These do seem to glow! I was wondering about that book. I'm going to put it on my list to investigate.
