Default Inner Flower

Inner Flower is from my The Beauty Within collection and was composed at Hopeland Gardens in Aiken, SC. I have no idea what it actually is, but it was growing out of the side of an iris. I loved the shape, dew and the little blue drop on the surface.

Steven,

“Inner flower”?

What a nice term to choose here and then it makes one think of the inner value of people beyond what one can see, what they say, what people say about them, but rather their inner worth and beauty!

This is a wonderful thought-provoking metephor you have ceated!

Asher

Antonio,

You say, “Beautiful!”

Both Jerome, (elsewhere) and you, here in this instance), are superbly succinct. That’s how you are wired or self disciplined! I said no more than you in actual “value” but use a deluge of words!

Sometimes, I am too succinct ... but I had to express how I felt the beauty of the image.
