I took this picture of a water lily at Hawthorn Woods Garden Center in Hawthorn Woods, Illinois.
Be the light, it will help you, others and the world.
Have you given someone a bouquet of flowers this year? Have you received a bouquet of flowers this year? Giving and receiving flowers is a great way to elevate the day.
Nature is an excellent teacher. When I looked at this purple flower yesterday in the garden I was reminded to keep climbing, keep thriving and go in the direction of the light. I shall endeavor to continue to grow everyday and wish the same for everyone.
There are so many places that you just stumble upon awesome art. I was checking out the Dekalb Public Library in Dekalb, Illinois and beyond being impressed by the building itself and the architectural details I was delighted by the art in the library.
