Unroll the Beauty

Standard

When I was at Kew Gardens last time

I was fascinated by the fern growing.

 

 

The way it unrolls itself, looking like an ammonite first…

each stem …..

unrolls ……

then each little side branch unrolls separately

with more leaves unrolling.

Everything unrolls slowly to perfection,

all in good time.

Nature is fascinating.

Adopt the pace of nature.

Her secret is patience.

Kew Gardens 5th Smile – Temperate House

Standard

A cold day in Kew Gardens and so many things to see:

The Temperate house is home to an internationally important collection of temperate zone plants, including some of the rarest and most threatened.

It is the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world.

As a Listed Grade 1 building, it has been restored to its new glory and re opened in May 2018.

Walk with me and enjoy the rare and beautiful plants.

Click on the individual picture to enlarge.

Each plant showing off its beauty in different ways.

There is a spiral staircase to walk up along the Gallery.

The view is fantastic, and the sun was shining.

On my way out I passed the gift shop and found some lovely Bamboo socks.

I couldn’t resist.

 

I’ll be back at Kew very soon!

Shades of Green

Standard

Green is the colour of nature.

The colour of Mother Nature

The colour of Life and energy.

It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility.

Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety.

Dark green is also commonly associated with money.

 

…. just look at these different greens….

so many shades

 

 

and many different shapes and textures.

 

 

Green is relaxing for me, it feels warm, yet fresh.

However I do not have many outfits in green.

Do you love green?

What is your favourite colour?

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!

 

 

Simply Red

Standard

The way you start your day
can affect your whole day…
Begin it with a smile
calmness of mind
coolness of emotions
and a heart filled with gratitude.

Take time to smell the flowers
Take time to hug a tree
Take time to hear each bird sing
Take time to simply be.

 

We might miss some of the beauty on life 

if we don’t slow down

and pay attention to the little things around us.

 

Start your day with the beauty of red today!

         

 

Different shapes,

different shades,

all unique,

all beautiful!

 

Just like you!
