the beauty of nature

The boys came inside the other day and were talking about this flower in the garden that had another flower growing in it.
I will be honest, I didn't take much notice as I was cooking dinner but they mentioned it again later and I decided I had to investigate.
At first glance I didn't know what they were talking about - it was just a flower to me. 
BUT, when I looked closer I could see there were little flowers growing on the big flower.



Perfectly formed little flowers within a big flower.
Isn't nature just amazing.

I am back to study once again - hence the lack of blogging. I spend a lot of time behind the computer, but not doing fun stuff. I miss the holidays already :(
But that's what life's all about, isn't it. You can't appreciate the good times without the bad.

I'm still doing a little sewing, a little knitting (my first pair of socks!!!) and a little reading (loving The Women in Black).

Hopefully I will be back soon ;-)

How cute is that.............very good spotting by the boys. I know what you mean about study, I'm off to the big smoke tomorrow to attend a conference and have a few more seminars and classes to attend this year to update and gain new skills. Holidays.............what are they?

Stunning colours in that flower, it would make a good colour combination for a quilt. I loved The Women in Black, it was a good read.

Yes, without the bitter we would not know the sweet. I am very impressed with sock knitting. And the flower.

Hi Levin, nice to have you here again! Lovely pic and very nice flower, the colors are gorgeous! I suppose we all miss the holidays. Have a nice week, Clara.

that is a very pretty flower. I am crazy about knitting socks. So fun. Well, I'm crazy about knitting the first sock - it's the second sock that I never seem to get around to. Now if we could all start sporting socks that don't match I would be all set.

I love how little people have the time and inclination to observe and appreciate the little things like this. Sweet.
