Lilac/Flowers [Nurture Photography]


I took a lovely stroll and happened on a beautiful assortment of wildflowers.

Others were not much to look at.  photo IMG_4514edit900pxds_zps749f9382.jpg But upon closer inspection I saw something special in these little petals and buds. I was reminded that  "Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it." -Confucius  photo beautyedit900pxds_zpsc03685e6.jpg I hope that the next time you venture out with camera in hand you will give the often forgotten and less than desired a second glance.
