There are patches of beauty all around us that often go unnoticed. Yesterday while driving to my daily aerobics class, my eyes happened to slide over to the right, where they nearly popped out at the sight of this hilltop completely covered in orange poppies. My mouth literally dropped open and I whispered Wow. On my way back from the gym, I just had to pull over to the side of the road and take some pictures. Even though these are just taken with my camera phone, I hope you get at least a glimmer of this little patch of beauty that unexpectedly graced my eyes.
Today, look for your own unexpected “patches of beauty.” And for more inspiration, check out this post of mine from 2008, which includes one of my favorite poems of all time.
