We admire brilliance whether it is in a person or a flower. The difference is that brilliant people are rarely found, but brilliant flowers are everywhere present. Maybe that is true about people also, but we don't realize their brilliance. Every flower lifts and comforts the soul. I love cactus flowers because no one would ever give someone a cactus flower. It is not a good idea to try to pick them and so they have to be enjoyed exactly where they grow. Maybe that is another lesson for recognizing brilliance in people, enjoying them exactly where and how they grow.
