Aloe Vera Stage 2
Nature offers a counter-balance to the hyper speed pace of our modern instant gratification lives. Last week I posted an image of this Aloe vera flower bud shortly after it had formed. I had thought, “it will flower in a day or so and I’ll post the image of it open.”
Well, mother nature had a lesson for me. She’s not on my blog, twitter, facebook, linkedin schedule. It’s been a week and you can see the delicate orange color developing slowly at the base of the petals. When the time is right I’ll share with you the image of the fully open aloe vera flowers. Wouldn’t these buds make wonderful earrings!

Celebrating the Ordinary
One of the things I enjoy is the way the camera helps me focus and see the ordinary in a fresh way. I walk past this Aloe vera flower several times everyday. Today I stopped and looked. I invite you to stop and look. The ordinary is so full of wonder.
