Hello everyone on this very beautiful and mostly sunny morning! It is a very nice day so far, though there is thunderstorm warnings out now. Muffin won’t like that. She hates thunderstorms and usually hides under the bed until it’s all over. If it’s just a small storm she will stay curled up at my feet. But it’s so quiet and peaceful out there this morning. A great morning to sit on the deck with my coffee and feed the chipmunks and squirrels. They found out quickly I was back and came looking for peanuts the next day. The birds are all gone, except Sir George. He came back the next day as well.
Just taking a short walk through the trees across the street we can see quite a few different wild flowers. Everything is so lush and green now. If only it would stay like this year round. This would be a perfect place to live. Unfortunately, it’s a little different than that. Oh well. Can’t change the weather. Would be nice though. I thought we would have something a little different today. I will show you some of the flowers blooming around here now.
This is the same trail that we walked down a while back. But there are more flowers blooming now. A lot of people think that is boring. But, if you are discouraged or depressed, just feel down a bit, then I would suggest slowing down and taking a look at the beauty of flowers.
There is an amazing variety of flowers. Both garden flowers and wild flowers. I will show some of our wild flowers today. They are not only beautiful, but the scent of some is just amazing as well. People need to take some time and pay attention the the natural world around us. To be honest, the material world can cause us a lot of problems, such as anxiety and depression.
But the natural world is where we can find relief from a lot of these problems. Take time to stop and look at those flowers when you are out for a walk or run. It is okay to stop once in a while to look at things. Then you can start up again. It really will make a difference.
They come in all sizes and colors. Unfortunately the battery on my camera decided to quit working so I missed a few of the flowers. So we will have to go back there again. I am trying to get pictures of as many of our wild flowers as possible this year. Why? Because I want to. No other reason really. Well, except for this, I enjoy the beauty of flowers. But I don’t want to pick them which normally kills the plant. So no more flowers. So taking pictures of them is a good way to enjoy them. Then other people get to enjoy the flowers too.
Well, I guess that ends our little visit for today. Thank you everyone for joining me once again and I hope you have enjoyed it here today. I hope that you all have a great weekend and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
