Beauty and the Glory of God reflected in natural Chile

Beauty and the Glory of God reflected in natural Chile

So many of you may know either from going to college with me or reviewing my CV on this blog site that my undergraduate education is in Biology and Chemistry specializing in microbiology. Today I decided to enjoy seeing so many of the different forms of plant life and nature here in Chile.  Therefore, I’ve captured what I’ve seen today and wanted to share this esthetic beauty with you.  Isn’t the above flower amazing? :)  Enjoy!

DSC00941A contrasting of the past, present, and future all at once.  See if you can find each in this picture.

I always get a kick outta hearing this farmer coming down the road next to cars and hearing the cloak cloak sound of his horses’ shoes hitting the road. 🙂

The local store where I often buy vegetables.  I told my Daddy one of the best parts of this experience in Chile is being able to step back into my childhood where neighborhood stores on several street corners abound.  DSC00981

I also just love the clay roof tops of many homes.  I remember when our house used to have slate tiles and when my parents had them replaced with some polymer type slates of more modern weather protectors.  I also am continually surprised at the impalement hazards lining most of the home fences and gates here.  Seriously, I don’t think these are legal in the US but I might be wrong.  One slip trying to climb these gates and you’re TOAST!!

I know it’s off the natural beauty/floral theme but, I just thought this house was so beautiful I had to include it in my walk around the neighborhood pics from today.🙂

I am so looking forward to comparing this to a Georgia dandelion upon my return to the US.
