a new favourite ever blooming, shade tolerant annual - begonias / hey big guy ! handsome Samuel / it's lilac time / planting my window boxes this weekend & the best ever gardening gloves / I live beside the ocean / white lilacs / hot pink geraniums - shut up !! what took me so long + begonias / Winnie & I on our morning walk into the park & along the harbour's edge / fern love / front garden orangey red tulips
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. Anne Frank
oh my goodness !! what Anne said !
I've been outside almost more than I've been inside lately (which is such a good thing). It's like a drug, nature is - the incredible wonder & beauty of it all (from blossom to ant to leaf to the teeny bright red mite* in the vegetable garden). Sometimes it makes my heart race with excitement and other times, if I'm sitting in the back forest in the fenced in yard with Winnie & Sam & Betty drinking ice tea and listening to the finches I feel tranquilized, heavy like a stone, unable to move or lift my head. I become so relaxed, completely lulled into nowness sitting there in my faux adirondack chair ;-)
Nature cures me, nature lets me become lost, nature makes me happy, hopeful & oh so blessed.
* insectopedia - the size of a pin head, though it looks alarmingly like a tick - it's harmless to animals (including us ;-)
