Kew Gardens 3rd Smile

Standard

Another visit to my favourite garden.

Every time I explore different areas.

As it is so big, I never run out of finding beauties of nature.

This time I found

the making of a pinecone

A really funny shaped very small bloom:

(I don’t know all the botanical names, as my eyes are bigger than my memory)

‘Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 12 The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. ‘ Genesis 1,11

Weekly Smile

Standard

Yay

Trent’s Weekly Smile is back!

 

 

I am smiling about my progress in crocheting.

I love this cardigan I saw on Yochet’s blog.

 

 

After a couple of hurdles, as all is American….

translating it into English/German stitch names and converting the sizes I finally started.

I am smiling today that it is nicely growing.

 

Well worth a smile

don’t you think?

 

Today’s Inspiration – Khalil Gibran

Standard

I am lately taking pictures out of my window of the beautiful sky

because of the lovely colours or clouds.

They go so well with some chosen quotes for a little inspiration.

 

 

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet

and the winds long to play with your hair.

 

Khalil Gibran

 

Go out and experience it, it makes you feel good!

Have a wonderful day!

 

 

Memories

Standard

Leftovers in their less visible form are called memories.

Stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As it is holiday time, sunny weather, time to spend with the family or friends we will make memories.

We all take our cameras with us, take pictures and look at them later, remembering a wonderful time.

We should not just go somewhere take pictures and leave.

No, we should take the view in consciously, enjoy the very moment, then take a picture.

Like that when we look at the picture later, we have more emotions and really remember how it was then.

 

 

Therefore, to have great memories we need to walk around with our eyes open and brain working……to keep those amazing images alive in our memory.

Be conscious about what you see, what you feel and what you smell and firstly it makes you feel really alive and you have a whole lot more fantastic memories.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”

Enjoy the world and the moments consciously and you can enjoy life much more!

 

 

We make memories every day in our lives, not only on holidays.

So make sure you make and give wonderful memories , not only for yourself but also for others, your children, your parents, your friends.

 

Have a memorable day!
