"My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood; this is my street; this is my life. I am 42 years old; in less than a year I will be dead. Of course I don't know that yet, and in a way, I am dead already." One of my favourite movie of all time. I'm way over due to re watch it. Than again, I'll be 42 this year, maybe I shouldn't.😮 Love this artwork 🌹#AmericanBeauty 🌹 #LookCloser 🌹 #movies 🌹 #aficionado
Who knew that when a crocus is pressed, it becomes almost transparent?
Being that crocuses are one of the first spring flowers to bloom, I always considered them rather hardy. I was awestruck by how filmy and delicate it became after being pressed and dried.
She appears strong, surviving the harsh frost with grace...yet when under pressure, you get a glimpse of how delicate she really is...
Book Review from the Bayou: Happy Earth Day 🌏! Here is some trivia for today: "The world is full of bugs. For each human being on Earth there are over 200 million bugs 🐜." Like them or not, insects outnumber all other creatures on Earth 🌏! Over a year ago, I started documenting some of the insects I found within steps of my house and the occasional ones in St. Landry Parish. To be honest, I have always had an interest in bugs and insects since I was old enough to notice them. I am always using the phrase "look closer" when I describe my #tinywonderstuesday posts, because in order to notice the tiny bug and insect world all around you , you must look 👀 down and more attentive to see this fascinating world. I loved finding a book called Look Closer: An Introduction to Bugwatching by Gay W. Holland because of the detailed and true to life illustrations of many of the insects I have encountered myself. If you have a budding entomologist or bug fan in the family check this book out! It gives an up close look at bugs around us that may not be the nicest bugs around, but have a purpose as decomposers, pollinators, and food for other animals. Kids will learn that every insect has a purpose in this place we call Earth! 🌏. This book is a great guide to some common insects that are found in many different surroundings from your front yard, a roadside field, a pond and many other places. I recommend this book for identifying and learning about many pests bugs as well as a few beneficial insects like assassin bugs, lacewings, and dragonflies. #bookreviewfromthebayou#kidartlit#booksaboutinsects#lookcloser#anintroductiontobugwatching#gailholland#happyearthday
