Last weekend I visited Magnolia Gardens in Charleston, SC. While the space has seen plenty of human management, the range of biodiversity is still so amazing. Each tiny plant is the product of millions of years’ revisions, and I feel so inspired to be patient and diligent, to not rush ideas but see the value in “slow.”
The turkeys at the petting zoo reminded me of the Mummer’s Parade. I was so busy composing my shot of that deer that I almost didn’t notice her nudging me. “Food?”
Those flowers might be “giant spotted foxglove.” That pattern would be great on textiles.
After that last picture was taken, I decided to shut off my dying iPhone. My buddy and I then saw a blue heron catch a frog, which was snatched from its beak by a hawk, which flew directly over our heads, struggling frog in its talons. BOOM. NATURE.
