Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape

Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Enjoys the air it breathes! |

| sometimes things must fade | 

| do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again | ~ unknown 

| beautiful things | 

| every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It is enough to drive one mad |

‘never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful’


It is breathtaking how much the soul can be filled by the beauty of a simple rose. I happened upon this pale, yellow rose in my Mother’s rose garden. The simple surprise of finding this beautiful flower filled my soul with such beauty and it eased the heaviness I felt about life. Life often brings some ugly moments when your mind and soul are weighed down by the burdens of life. A simple rose became a reminder to pause and reflect on my perspective toward life’s circumstances and rather than being weighed down by life, endeavour to find the beauty in the simple things, the everyday happenings of life.

“Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;

for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament.

Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower,

and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

blossoming souls


Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.

The bud of a beautiful Louts flower.



Bought some beautiful flowers from the markets today. It is a lovely feeling to get up early on a weekend and go out and about.



I discovered a new flower during my latest photography adventure. This is a Dahlia, it is quite a stunning flower.

New Beginnings

The end of 2011 has quickly passed and 2012 has begun to disappear. Every New Year brings its own challenges and blessings. It is like a new flower slowly growing then suddenly  blooming into glorious beauty and splendour. I hope and pray that 2012 is full on glorious and wonderful things for you. These things may often be presented in life’s many challenges but remember to always look for the blessings and beauty in life.
