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!
Just like you!
It is colourful flower time
the Earth is laughing!
Beautiful Wisteria hanging out of a garden
Tiny flowers along the shopping mall
Even tinier flower, shot with a Macro lens on my phone.
Petunias in a flower basket
Little flowers , again captured with a Macro lens.
and all together
My strawberries this year grew absolutely beautiful.
They bloomed a lot:
We seem to have had enough rain
and then the sun came.
I had more strawberries than ever.
A collage out of my many harvests.
and then came out the
Strawberry bowl to eat them out of.
Oh how yummy they were.
There are still now some late comers, I eat straight of the plant.
What a joy, what great gift!
Recently I went for a Woodland Walk in my area.
A tranquil place where the council encourages wild flowers to grow.
I saw many beautiful flowers in all different colours.
How this earth really laughs in flowers.
just as Ralph Waldo Emerson says.
Some of my self made quotes for today’s inspiration
Bloom, Be and Live!
On a Monday we always need something happy and nice to start the new week.
I bring you some of my favourite colourful pictures to enjoy
and to make your world colourful!
The pictures can be found on my my Pinterest page.
Still beautiful Autumn and the leaves are falling…
It feels great rustling through the leaves
like a child…..
My old Primary School from the back….
A lovely Ginkgo tree with blue sky,
just so beautiful!
You all know how I love my palm trees
so we had a short holiday in Spain near Barcelona.
We stayed in Calella in Catalonia.
A wonderful beach welcomed us and
just listening to the sound of the waves was so relaxing and calming.
Calella had wonderful plants,
a lovely church,
a light house
small streets with delightful shops
and amazing houses with cacti growing up… over 2 floors
We enjoyed the warmth and the beautiful beach.
and had a relaxing time.
A truly wonderful short holiday!
Spring is here – officially.
Look at this overloaded tree,
you can hardly see the branches.
I’ll leave you to admire nature.
Breathtaking, isn’t it?
Take your time and
soak it all in!
