"The creation is not a study, a roughed-in sketch; it is supremely, meticulously created … even on the perfectly ordinary and clearly visible level, creation carries on with an intricacy unfathomable and apparently uncalled for."
- Annie Dillard, from Pilgrim at Tinker's Creek
Sunflowers and zinnias, hot summer faithfuls, are sometimes viewed as ordinary and commonplace. Yet, like all creation they are "supremely, meticulously created".
The heat is not the only thing taking my breath away
when I'm in the garden on these hot summer days.
I am in awe.
