The Wonders of Nature
The world in which we live is a wonderland of infinite beauty and our very existence within it is, in itself, a nearly incomprehensible miracle of creation. Yet, how many of us truly enjoy the wonders of nature that surround us, or fully appreciate the incredible variety of life which nature bestows?
Often, we seem to overlook the marvels of our everyday environment that feel so familiar. Yet, in truth, we need not look any further for the wonders of nature than our own backyards.
