Striking Pink Petals in Autumn Sun

IMG_0090

Striking pink petals, with a patch of redish-pink dots, lit up in autumn sunshine.
(This azalea is right near my front door, and I must have walked by tons of times without even noticing it.)
Oh for a little sunshine, and the slowness and spaciousness in which to enjoy it.

How can a flower which is so intricate and so delicate stand up to whipping winds and heavy rain? Strength, it seems, is not always where we most expect to find it.

How wonderful to be out in the garden — if not with hands in soil, then at least observing, taking in delights of nature.

Michele Gierck is a writer who spends her spare time in the garden.

B is for Bee, and for Beautiful

Busy Bee 23 April 2017

B is for bee, and for beautiful. There’s joy to be had from simple moments in nature — like watching bees in a bush of rosemary as the autumn sun shines. Another beautiful relaxing day; a day off from writing.
