Beauty is often right in front of us - yet we go miles away in search of it. I am trying to spend more time looking closely at my surroundings. In the early morning light today, walking out my front door, I knelt down and admired these beautiful, yet simple, gaillardias lighting up the late summer. In these northern parts, our late summer flowers bring happiness...sunflowers, gaillardias, coneflowers that we need to carry us to spring of next year!
