some living beauty

Thursday, April 17, 2008

since there seems to be so much concern out there about the fact that I am receiving dead roses (!), i thought i'd post some photos of the live ones that surprised me on Monday.

the lilies are fascinating…watching them open and seeing how the pollen creeps up the stamen (is that what those things are called?) and then detaches itself. amazing how God has designed so many individual flowers to bloom and reproduce in such unique ways. there is so much to learn about creation and the Creator. i need to do some more research on my meet the artist thingy I want to do.

such a beautiful gift.

and I'm so grateful.
