I read the Mouse and Mole books by Joyce Dunbar. These were beautifully illustrated books with very heart warming stories. They nearly always had a moral message, but hidden within the cleverly simple story.
One scene from these books which particularly stayed with me was where Mole sees one particularly beautiful flower outside which he wants, and being the more rash one of the pair runs out and cuts it off, only to find that it can now no longer grow. There is then some moral (unrelated to flowers) which sadly I have forgotten (it is probably not the bit I should have forgotten).
I saw a flower in our garden which just popped out at me. Instead of cutting it off (as even if the moral did not stick with me I know not to always cut off flowers and also that you cannot glue them back together) I took some pictures of it. I used my hipstamatic app on my Iphone and was delighted with the quick results I got.
It is important to note that I am simply an everyday person taking snaps. I yearn for Polaroids and aged effects but want them in the quickest, simplest way when you have no such camera.
