The value of nature


 Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

My good friend, fellow writer and photographer Pete Poulsen and his wife Elaine were our visitors in Denver this week and we had the good fortune to go with them to the Denver Botanic Gardens.  There, despite the overcast and somewhat dreary weather, Pete captured shot after shot of the glorious beauty of the gardens and proved once again that flowers don’t care about a dismal day, they just naturally make each day as beautiful as possible. 
 
As Nobel literature winner Bertrand Russell once noted, “The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”  Thanks Pete.  Your photos definitely have sharpened my view of the writers' moments waiting to be discovered in the world around me.
