Take Time to Notice the flowers

Isn't this a happy flower? On Saturday, I spent nearly 4 hours cleaning out my classroom for the last time. (I think a Yippee is in order!) By the time I was finally finished I was hot, tired and ready to go home. For the past three years, I have passed this bush, without ever really seeing it. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't have noticed yesterday, if not for Midnight. Midnight, being a curious puppy, was fixated on a dead bug and would not come when I called her. I swung back around to call her again and literally looked at the flower head on. My first thought was "Where did this thing come from? Surely I would noticed it......." How many more things have I missed that are right in front of my face?

It's absolutely lovely and the best thing is you noticed it, you captured it and you appreciated it. Me too, thanks.

And did you get a new teaching position somewhere else, or are you chainging jobs entirely?

I know that feeling of leaving a classroom for the last time, it's bitter sweet.

Nice to meet you Jen, I am Lori

Beautiful! Since my son gave me a digital camera I find myself being more observant, noticing the little things. I'm glad you noticed that flower and shared it.

it's nice to meet you, too.
I'm changing professions....trying something different. You're right about it being bittersweet, but amazingly enough I didn't shed ANY tears.
