Non~conformist

Why try to be someone you're not?
Life is hard enough without adding impersonation to the skills required.
~Robert Brault

In my garden
There is a sea of purple coneflowers.
All purple.
Save one.

And it is a breath of fresh air.

I love that quote. Yes, impresonation = difficulty. It's much easier to be authentic.

XO,

Cone flowers are beautiful, I did not know they came in white though.

I have never seen a corn flower before, it is lovely.
Always be true to oneself, never change places with anyone for I believe we are right where we are suppose to be. Many prayers for Shauna......:-) Hugs

I love the elegance of the white coneflower...white in the garden alwasys shines. Breathing in this lovely moment... Happy Day, Chas :o) ((HUGS))

I love how it's proud to stand there in it's imperfection (one petal shorter then the rest) - let alone it being a different color among all the rest of the coneflowers.

True beauty - blooms where it's planted. The same could be said of us.
