Inspired by Nature

I found something new in the fence row by my house the other day. I had no idea what it was, but the large size and intricate design captured my attention. Tragopogon Pratensis SeedpodTragopogon Pratensis Seedpod Tragopogon Pratensis SeedpodTragopogon Pratensis SeedpodTragopogon Pratensis SeedpodI had not yet figured out what it was until today when I discovered a new flower on the plant.Tragopogon PratensisNow that I have an image of the flower that turned into the giant seedpod, I could look it up online to figure out what kind of plant it is. It’s official name is Tragopogon Pratensis, otherwise known as Meadow Salsify, Showy Goat’s Beard, Meadow Goat’s Beard, or Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon, none of which I had ever heard of.

When you are outside, remember to look closely. Inspiration is all around you. The details in God’s creation are amazing. You just might see something you can incorporate into your own art work.
