When just quickly glancing at the south Florida landscape, it can appear to be very monochromatic. Zooming down the highway to get to the beach you whiz by varying hues of greens, grays, and tans. What most visitors don’t realize about this area, though, is the vast beauty that lurks amidst the bland palate of the prairies and marshes, if you just take the time to slow down and look.
The fact that the beauty is in the details down here makes you appreciate it that much more. I’m not looking out my window everyday at fields of colorful flowers, but when I go off the beaten path and truly pay attention to everything around me, sometimes I can spot a gem.
Or if I’m lucky maybe even a few.
And even those seemingly boring plants can be pretty spectacular if you stop and really look at them.
In life, as in nature, sometimes you have really make the effort to appreciate all the little things around you. But I think that just makes them all the more wonderful.
