Round (The Girl that Dreams Awake)
I took this picture at the garden in the Bellagio, Las Vegas. Whenever I go to Vegas, I always go to see the new theme in the garden. It’s so colorful, bright and beautiful. I love seeing all the different designs and use of plants and flowers. I am terrible at keeping plants, especially those that flower, alive. Imagine my surprise when I went to the naming ceremony for my tribe and I was blessed with a name that means “she who plants flowers.” I have come to think of the name in a different way. I plant flowers on paper through my drawings, in scrapbooks through my photos, on cloth through embroidery, etc. I love flowers from the tiny little bitty ones to the big amazing beautiful ones. I love their symmetry, their colors, their smell, the softness of their petals, their ability to make me smile even on the darkest of days. Seeing a huge room full of them like this…just amazing. If you’ve never been there, put it on your list of things to see. It is so worth it.
