Day 342 – Crystal gems

"December drops no weak, relenting tear, By our fond summer sympathies ensnared; Nor from the perfect circle of the year Can even winter's crystal gems be spared." ~ Christopher Pearse Cranch

Day 325 – Small wonders

"The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." ~ Bertrand Russell Sometimes you have to get down on your hands and knees to see them properly though. Because down on the ground there are small wonders waiting to be discovered, mini little worlds of life waiting to be discovered. You just have to get down into their worlds with them to really see their true beauty.

Day 282 – In the dew

"For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." ~ Khalil Gibran And the Autumn comes and with it there is light, colours and water, sent to decorate the world and make it look beautiful in its last moments of life before winter comes and sweeps it all away.

Leaves and branches reflected in pond with setting sun. October Days

Day 281 – October Days

“October sunshine bathed the park with such a melting light that it had the dimmed impressive look of a landscape by an old master.” ~ Elizabeth Enright I am a summer person. I mourn its passing all through the long winter months but at least at this time of year you can still find traces of it lingering on some October days.

Fungus in black and white Recyclers of the world

Day 271 – Recyclers

"Fungi are the grand recyclers of the planet and the vanguard species in habitat restoration" ~ Paul Stamets They are also incredibly beautiful and some of them are bloody delicious too especially when cooked in butter with garlic. I think like so much of out natural world we take these strange and wonderful things for granted and yet they are an vital part of our ecosystem. Without them, well we don't know exactly what would be the outcome of such a situation but there is quite a bit of science that indicates it would not be a good thing.

Green trees reflected in green lake ripples

Day 267 – Green ripples

Water doesn't belong to us, be we belong to water: when it has passed through our fingers and pores and bodies, nothing separates us from earth.” ~ Emmi Itäranta I love how the trees seems to be bleeding into the water. The soft ripples make them look almost as if they have been painted into the watery world below. This is a local pond which is home to a rather large amount of Ducks, Geese and Swans that nest on the couple of little islands that sit out in the middle of it. It is also, I have discovered, home…

Leaves turning an autumn September colour

Day 265 – September colour

"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes We have had a fairly warm hot summer by UK standards which has rumbled into September but the last few days that seems to have gone by the way side and you can feel Autumn is in the air and see its beautiful colours starting to tinge all the trees. Some of the trees are even starting…

Day 244 – Evening saunter

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life.” ~ John Burroughs A summers evening is definitely one of the best rewards of the simple life. Those days that end in beautiful colours, the heat of the day still crackles in the air but the promise of the cool of the night can…

name carved into tree, leave your mark

Day 234 – Leave a mark

"Honestly, the essence of publishing hasn't changed. Since the days of the cave man carving stuff on the cave walls, people have wanted stories, and storytellers have wanted an audience. That is still the case. The changes are really a matter of format." Susan Wiggs Not just story tellers either, all of us have a desire to leave our mark which is why we carve out names in trees, or write it in concrete. Early man left his mark on cave walls, now we leave ours on walls and trees. We are all only here temporarily but we are all…

Ears of wheat in black and white

Day 233 – Wheat of art

"Reason clears and plants the wilderness of the imagination to harvest the wheat of art." ~ Austin O'MalleyThere is something so relaxing about watching the fields of wheat sway in the summer breeze. When come across such fields out on my walks I always sit down and take a few moment to just be still there.
