"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh (Vietnamese Monk, Activist and Writer. b.1926)
Seed pods of the Lunaria annua known also as Silver Dollar Money Plant, Moonwort and Honesty, growing in a local private garden. These pods are often seen decorating homes in their dried state having a translucent silver beige color.
