Being the deep kind of guy that I am, I always look for analogies between everyday experiences and spiritual enlightenment. I found a few in my own back yard. Oops, another analogy! The back yard to me represents the spiritual self. Or something.
I like the photo above because it’s just straight-on and simple. This is one of my favorite flowers ever, and its siblings are all over my back and front yard right now.
The one above reminds me of a lotus blossom. It’s actually a variety of iris. I love the delicate greenish tint.
Speaking of irises…
The photo below only qualifies for this collection of iris photos because you’ll see a lush bearded iris in the background.
