One of the most beautiful plants I have ever grown was a pepper plant. This beautiful plant had soft purple flowers. The flowers matured into yellow peppers, then progressed into a deep purple color, and finally a fiery red. All three stages could be seen on the plant at once. This profusion of color made it a beautiful plant.
Now, could you imagine me telling this story without the photo of peppers? I found this stock photo and it gives the reader a visual reference for the story. Having personal and commercial use photos available for free can help you more effectively tell your story.
