a beautiful garden, total: 2
A garden is for relaxation and contemplation. Enjoy it well, my friend.
bright green moss, total: 2
When it rains the moss can get so bright that it almost glows.
a colorful nebula, total: 1
A nebula is something so wondrous, so beautiful, so distant. Just think of the distant worlds where aliens are submitting book reviews to alien book review websites we can't even comprehend.
a beautiful sunset, total: 2
It's like looking into a hot furnace in the sky.
a snowflake, total: 1
Look at how the laws of physics and fluid mechanics have indifferently created a thing of such perfection and beauty.
a lookout tower, total: 1
Who knows what you will see from the top, after climbing all the steps… or what you will discover about yourself?
a tree in Autumn, total: 1
Isn't that simply beautiful? And aren't you glad that trees can't chop you down?
ceiling tiles, total: 1
Ceiling tiles offer up a great counting experience, especially if you are trying to distract yourself on the way to the operating room.
a Capybara, total: 1
A Capybara is a 250 pound rodent, but it is very gentle and wise, with very cute whiskers and strawlike fur and black button eyes. It makes gentle "tweatle tweatle" sounds when amused.
caucasian origami, total: 1
Caucasian origami is very rare and hard to find but the lack of artistry can be quite distinctive.
