Little pink stars along a dirt path in the mountains. Summer in Utah is why I live here.

How many hours I’ve spent in photoshop designing things, trying to get that perfect gradient, the one right there between the yellow and magenta in the center of this lily. And nature just whips it out like it ain’t no big thang.
