Nature’s Imperfections

How fortunate was I to find this garden dahlia bloom with one of its petals almost completely devoid of color! Mother nature occasionally puts on one of these shows for us and we look upon it in awe. How interesting! How intriguing! Does this imperfection make the flower any less beautiful to the naked eye? Any more beautiful?

A picture inspires a thousand words. What are yours?

    to me this photo shows that none of us (animal, vegetable, or mineral) is perfect.. we all have flaws.. but in other ways, we are beautiful.

    I love to quilt, but I am a “perfectionist” and I hate making boo-boos . After seeing this picture, I don’t feel quite so bad about making mistakes 😉

  3. Thank you for your input! This is inspiring to hear how the”imperfect flower” has related to you in a personal way. Yes, nature has its way of teaching us lessons about our own selves!

  4. That petal makes it a stunner….lovely capture.
