Almost anywhere you look in nature, you’ll find interesting patterns or textures. Look even closer, and those designs often reveal their purpose—whether it’s the shape of a flower designed to attract pollinators or seeds built to carry on the wind. Nature is so simple in its ability to restore us, and yet it becomes increasingly complex through deeper observation. Notice the patterns in sand created by the rippling water or a Mimosa tree whose flowers look like tiny fiber optic lights and smell divine. Old hydrangea flowers roll like tumbleweed across our winter landscape and though their lacey skeletal remains are far from their original summery blue, they are lovely just the same. From tree bark to insect wings, lichen to the feathers of a bird, be amazed by the textures and patterns that surround us in nature.
