Hello everyone and welcome to our first post in a new series! This one will take turns with my other series, “Art In Nature”. It should have been on Thursday of last week, but things are a bit mixed up right now with Christmas coming and new changes happening on my blog. I will be more regular once the New Year arrives. Anyway, in this series we will look at lots of different little things that we can see if we just slow down long enough to take a look around us. Just like with art in nature, it’s the same thing. There is just so much that we miss these days because we are always in a hurry, running here and there, and we miss out on so much beauty as well as some oddities in the little things around us.
A slight warning though, there will be insects shown from time to time, I know some people don’t like those little critters. But they really can be quite interesting in their different shapes and colors. And so many of them are attracted to the nectar in flowers. Unfortunately some were a bit too small to get a descent picture of them. Not all the little things I show will be real tiny however. But they will generally be things that are rather inconspicuous and so are things that we can very easily walk right past without ever seeing them. Which is a shame because they can be very pretty, interesting and sometimes quite unusual looking.
I have found myself walking along the path down to the river and have missed seeing something on the way down, but do manage to see it on the way back up and I wonder how I could possibly have missed it. Especially when they are not exactly hiding. So it is very easy to miss things. And when we are in a hurry, we miss even more, because we just don’t have “time” to stop and look. But always being in a hurry is not a good thing and can actually be bad for our health. Slowing down and taking some time to stop and look at some of these beautiful little things can bring a lot of enjoyment and happiness. And that can be very good for our health. Well, just a little introduction to our series today, I hope you enjoy the pictures. Have a wonderful day and God bless!
