I was reminded today of how, as humans, we are surrounded by visual expressions in so many ways. After a few days of severe storms here in New Zealand, summer has returned, the gardens have 'greened up', and the ice blocks kept in our freezer for visiting grandkids have become very popular again!
Glancing over at the two youngest girls sitting in the shade of the oak tree, deep in conversation today, I took a quick pic. The colours of the T shirts (one tie-dyed with Mum today) against the blues of the hydrangas are a pleasing combination I thought. Nature has such a naturally brilliant colour sense anyway - without the T shirts! Then I noticed the painted black and white fake tattoo on the leg. Isn't the visual world wonderful?
