It should be obvious by now - I love origami flowers.  Every time I find, and fold, a new interesting flower (most flowers are simply varying numbers of petals in different colors - unique structures are harder to come by than one might think) my emotions are mixed.  The result is inevitably satisfying, yet I always wonder how many more there will be.  It is becoming more and more clear to me that no matter how many designs I come up with, God's creation will always provide more subjects than I can even begin to fold into origami - as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
