Day 197 – Beneath your feet

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” ~ Henry David Thoreau And if you look very carefully you can find what is over your head also captured in the world beneath your feet. You just have to get down and dirty sometimes to see it.

Day 181 – Aging Beauty

In their highest boughs the world rustles, their roots rest in infinity; but they do not lose themselves there, they struggle with all the force of their lives for one thing only: to fulfil themselves according to their own laws, to build up their own form, to represent themselves. Nothing is holier, nothing is more exemplary than a beautiful, strong tree. ~ Hermann Hesse I love trees. Forests and woodlands are wonderful places no matter the time of year but there is something very beautiful about a large lone tree that stands tall and proud in solitary grace. This tree…

Day 182 – Little Creatures

"When the flower blossoms, the bee will come." ~ Srikumar Rao However this will only continue to be the case if we protect these little creatures. At the moment they are increasingly in danger, mainly from the use of pesticides in farming that cause huge damage to their population. They are vital parts of our earths fragile ecosystem and we ignore their plight at our peril.

Day 159 – Greener

"But the grass is always greener on the other side" ~ Side by TravisThe thing I love about this time of year is the lush green colours of everything, the leaves, the plants and the grass all have that new vibrant green about them that is just so full of life. The weather is here has been really rather chilly, I am back in my winter coat and have even had to turn the heating on but outside my window the green continues to fill my view and I hope that soon we shall have some actual summer weather to…

True Blue forget me not flowers

Day 158 – True Blue

“How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else? You cannot get a grip on blue. Blue is the sky, the sea, a god’s eye, a devil’s tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin’s cloak, a monkey’s ass. It’s a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day. Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster. This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty,…

Day 147 – Frothy

"Last week looking at it through the window when I'm writing, I see it is the whitest, frothiest, blossomest blossom that there ever could be." ~ Dennis Potter I love this description. I think it is so true. Looking out my window I could also seem the tree full of blossom and it swaying its branches, adorned with frothy white blossom back and forth in the spring breeze like a soft white cloud tinged with pink that had fallen from the sky and got trapped in the branches of a tree.

Day 136 – Delightful Weed

"What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson The Dandelion remains a weed and yet are we really oblivious to this plants beauty. It has bright yellow flowers with an abundance of tiny petals that fan out making it look like a golden star growing on the earth and then that flower turns into a seed head that has delighted each and everyone of us as children and a fair few of us as adults. Can you really resist the temptation to blow its seeds and watch them scatter. Maybe the dandelion…

Day 127 – Water watch

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.” ~ Nicholas Sparks Water is a wonderful thing to watch. It moves in a very unique way. There is a reason we call it a body of water I think, because like a body it is alive. It moves, it lives, it reflects, it holds, it caresses, it has power and strength way beyond anything else on this planet. Water is the stuff of life.

Day 123 – Changing Skies

"There's so much to learn and see all the time, and nothing nicer for me than to wake up, and the sky is blue." ~ Pattie Boyd I have to agree with Pattie here, I love waking up to blue skies. The winter here in the UK has been long and whilst it is been unseasonably mild it has been lacking in blue skies. England is the home of the dull grey sky and these last few months have seen more of them than anything else. However this last week that has changed and the blue has shown itself quite…

Day 122 – Wind Swept

The music of the wind has a hundred varied notes. It plays on every bush and tree a different harmony, whistling in the thornbushes, surging in the pines and firs, rustling in the evergreens, in winter chanting a mighty anthem in the bare branches, in summer playing a gay, whispering tune among the leaves. Listen to its shivering voice in the winter grass, the silky swish of its music in summer meadows, the dry whisper of its song in rushes and reeds. There is wonder in that wandering call in spring woodlands, when first it murmurs from afar, an almost…

Day 111 – While Walking

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche There is a lot of truth to this quote in my experience. I love walking, it is my preferred exercise. There is something about getting out into the countryside that just makes me feel calm and alive. It also combines perfectly with my love of photography too. I do like going for walks with people but really I love it best when I am on my own because that is when I can just relax and let my body carry and my brain go where it wants. Many of…
