“But why are we attracted to symmetry?
Why do we human beings delight in seeing perfectly round planets through the lens of a telescope and six-sided snowflakes on a cold winter day?
The answer must be partly psychological.
I would claim that symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe we find ourselves in.
The search for symmetry, and the emotional pleasure we derive when we find it, must help us make sense of the the seasons and the reliability of friendships.
Symmetry is also economy.
Symmetry is simplicity.”
Alan Lightman (American physicist, writer, and social entrepreneur)

For Becca’s Nurturing Thursday
So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.~
The imapct of lock down on all of us is beyond measure. The sudden change in life style was difficult for many of us. I was fortunate enough as the idea of gardening came to my rescue. I am definitely not a homebody or hermite but I am managing it 🙂
I have a couple of flowering plants. The garden is blooming in various phases first tulips, then azaleas and rhododendrons with early perennials. Now roses are back but beautiful bright flowering zinnia are show stoppers.

Earlier flowers in my garden – Summer at home
The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
There are in life a few moments so beautiful,that even words are a sort of profanity. ~
Even in the familiar there can be surprise and wonder.~
And a bonus picture from Google
If you see a dandelion as a weed, you’ll spray it. If you see it as a flower, you’ll draw it close, turn it this way and that, and become lost in the colossal burst of slender golden petals that spew sunshine into the darkest of souls. And so, how many things have we sprayed that could have illuminated our souls if we would have let them be more than what we let them be? ~
