Beauty can be found in the most unusual places…given our mind is open to see it. Taking a walk on the ranch during a time when the beauty is not as picturesque as I have it etched in my mind (due to the lack of rain since I can’t remember) also can be a time to find something new and beautiful. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder so it is subjective to experience, passion, creativeness, & value. In finding this beautiful cactus flower blooming on this retched, stickery, moisture-stealing plant is the perfect example of this sinerio. I can’t help but see it’s happy provoking beauty in the sunshiny yellow bloom. In addition to it’s physical splendor, the bee is happy to see it as the perfect buffet for the sweet nectar it so desires to take back to the cozy hive and magically produce their potion that we, as humans, enjoy spreading on our straight-out-of-the-oven biscuits. It is rather humbling, isn’t it? Dry ground…prickly pear…flower…bee…honey! It’s simply amazing to see beauty in unusal places. The moral of this story: Keep your eyes open while walking down the path of life, joy has a way of surprising you! AND YES!!! Finally it rained! Thank you Lord!
