Just for fun: Flowers of La Paloma
Often you find what you're looking for.
As a kid growing up, I mowed lawns. One neighbor had a passion flower vine. It was the first time I ever saw a breathtakingly beautiful flower. It left an impression, and now I have two passion flower vines in my yard.
Over the years I've learned to take notice of beautiful flowers. It's like gazing into the face of God. It's transforming.
The flowers (and palm tree) in these pictures were taken on the grounds of La Paloma, a small resort just south of Rosarito Beach in Northern Baja California.
Beauty is all around: in the flowers, in the sky, in the face of a loved one. If you learn to look for the beauty, you'll be surprised what you find. Enjoy the hunt!
