Here's another post about inspiration.  Check out this image!  Is it real or is it memorex?  Another enthralling aspect to taking a closer look at the outside world and seeing what it has to offer is being 'wowed' by what you find.  Here we have a foliage display like no other.  Coming to us from the mysterious isle of New Guinea comes a begonia.  However, this is not your ordinary begonia.  It's Begonia brevirimosa subspecies Exotica.

Here's a case of mother nature putting together a candy colored confection of kaleidoscopic koolness!  I mean seriously...are you feeling the power of this image? The leaves remind me of stained glass.  The color is outrageously unreal.  The patterns almost look computer generated but they're not.  Nature has its own plan and what results from its plan is nothing short of amazing.  More importantly it is truly inspiring.  If nature can put together lines and color in a way that emits beauty then why not strive to recreate that in other creative venues.  I love the idea that plants could inspire fashion or architecture or artwork, etc.  Why not let it do the same for you?
