One of the most unusual in my lily collection, this stunner is called, appropriately, ‘Renoir’.  

Outside the Box

I’m searching for a higher high,

A brilliant buzz that doesn’t lie;

I’m wishing on my wishing star,

And ripping scab to free the scar;

I’m digging hole to Chinese land,

Re-routing blood to better gland;

I’m aiming targets past the moon,

To eat dessert with bigger spoon;

And when I catch my biggest dreams,

I’ll step outside my skin’s old seams.

The Beauty of Nature

I don’t think there is anyone alive who would deny that true beauty can be found all around us – you just need the eyes to see it.  It is in the air around us, invisible and delicious in its compounded molecules.  It is in the sky – dancing in cloud formations, taking wing with birds in flight.  It is on the ground, laughing in the soft grass, singing in vegetables and fruits as they grow.  It is under the earth, in the riches and ores that fuel our function and feed our vanity.  It is thundering in a waterfall, riding a rainbow, painting a sunset, calling from cliff to sea.  God’s gracious and astoundingly creative fingerprints cover every detail; from the flagellum of a bacterium, to the ice- fire trail of a comet, there is much to see, smell, ponder.

SunshineTungurahua Erupts (Patrick Taschler)  Tungurahua sometimes erupts spectacularly. Pictured above, molten rock so hot it glows visibly pours down the sides of the 5,000-meter high Tungurahua, while a cloud of dark ash is seen being ejected...image was captured in 2006 as ash fell around the photographer. Located in Ecuador, Tungurahua has become active roughly every 90 years for the last 1,300 years.Adelboden Switzerland
