I had never seen such a creature before! It totally stunned me. At first, I even wondered if it was a hoax, until I looked up more pictures on it. So very unusual!
Look at the colours, look! Unbelievable!

"This is a cross section of a single blade of grass, stained for the microscope. The smiley faces are the channels that the water is drawn up through. It was taken at an EM lab."
The variety of patterns, shapes, textures....

Doesn't the purposefully-designed piece of each work make you wonder about the designer behind such beauty? I have!
I remember as a young girl, I was lying flat on my back on the private road in front of our government bungalow. I was just staring and staring up at the expanse of the sky that morning, totally awestruck. I'd wondered if clouds could be touched, how they would feel. I'd wondered if I could fly straight up all the way beyond the clouds, what I would find there. I'd wondered just how big the whole universe beyond it was....how much farther would it go?
Have you ever wondered about those things, too?
Thank You for this Beauty around us.
