~The Beauty And Wonder Of Nature

~"The miracles of Nature do not seem
miracles because they are so common.
If no one had ever seen a flower,even a
dandelion would be the most startling
event in the world."

~Nature is the Art of God.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

~Stop every now and then .
Just stop and enjoy.
Take a deep breath.
Relax and take in the abundance of life.

Loose yourself in Nature and find peace!

~The afternoon is bright,
with spring in the air,
A mild March afternoon,
With the breath of April stirring soon...
~Antonio Machado (1875-1939)

~Nature...alive with beauty and wonder!

Cat, your photos really convey that 'expectation' of Spring being just around the corner. Beautiful words too.

Dear Cat,
I so enjoyed catching up with you this morning.
Spring is whispering to you too!
Soon she will shake her sleepy head and we will see her in all her glory.
Bird songs and daffodils,

Beautiful pictures and words.

It reminded me of my favourite poem..


What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

William Henry Davies


I never get tired of reading or hearing that, and your words today so reminded me of this.

When I look outside I see only gray, but you find the beauty in nature whatever the season. Thanks for sharing.

Stunning! So sculptural and artistic.
And I really love the contrast of the wasp on white lace in the pic below.
