Art In Nature #13.

Hello again everyone on this beautiful, sunny spring day! It’s soon time to get out for a nice walk to the river, but first let’s take a look at some more of our beautiful nature’s art that can be found anywhere, even in cities. Now the art might be different in cities than in smaller towns and country locations, but it’s still there. Just stop and look around instead of being in a hurry all the time.

Now talk about a work of art! These blueberries just above are beautiful to look at, and they were also very delicious to eat! Okay, these are definitely a more country pleasure, but still, real art in nature…You will find that stopping to look at the art in nature will actually help you to stay calm and have much less stress in your life.

And in the pic above we have some Saskatoon berries. Definitely another work of art in nature, and the nice ripe purple ones were also delicious! Although I don’t really care for the large seed inside, but for taste, it’s great…And it’s true, nature has that natural calming effect on us, even just a small bit of nature. Perhaps looking at the trees along the street. Many cities are planting more trees and putting in green spaces wherever they can because it really does help people.

And in the pic above we have some ripe wild raspberries. There was a lot of them last year, but these were the only ones I saw that actually made it to the ripe stage. A lot of wild critters like to eat them before they get ripe, such as my friendly chipmunks, who don’t seem to mind climbing around those prickly plants….

And by helping to reduce stress, it also helps make our bodies healthier as well. Good reasons to get out more and take a look around us to see what we can find. There is a lot of beauty around outside and just going for a short walk each day is a good thing in itself. It’s just good to be outside as much as we can. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

  3. Yup there is beauty all ๐Ÿ™Œ around โค๏ธ

    Nature of course has the best and most amazing beauty! โค๏ธ

    But there is SOME beauty in cities too – is perspective, what is in front of you and how you see ๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๏ธ

    • Yes, there is beauty in cities too. But it does not bring the calming effect of natural beauty. That’s why people living in cities have more stress than those living in small towns and country locations. That’s why cities are putting in more parks and green spaces. But cityscapes can be beautiful too, I agree.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ธ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ“ท

      • No … you are correct about that … although sometimes you can see that in an old abandoned city? Like the way the grass pushes up the cracks in the side walk …the familiar buildings with different places in them now.

        I remember how a particular city was when I was growing up โค๏ธ I loved it โค๏ธ I loved being there – my grandparents lived in this city โค๏ธ it was my one constant all my life.

        I saw it in the 70โ€™s and then in the 80โ€™s lol … and the 90โ€™s โค๏ธ I remember those changes every time we visited

        Now it is run down – really bad – and everyone has pretty much left or died.

        But like there is a park I used to go swing at… the swings are broken and grass grows up … just aged which is a little beautiful also โค๏ธ sad to see time take a toll and reclaim but ya know – life and death โœŒ๏ธ

        Well while there is beauty to see in a city- the stress comes from the traffic and so many people all the time

        I like peace and calm – that is not really peace in the city.

        I like the nights quiet – not the sounds of traffic or trains or people screeching tires

        Although tell will tell you, I love sirens ๐Ÿšจโค๏ธโœŒ๏ธI have memories โค๏ธ many – ones with my grandfather โค๏ธ

        Well they need to solve problems instead of beautifying lol … I get the nature aspect – but ya know cities have high homeless populations – what do they do about it? They ignore it. They are busy building these parks

        I do not know what to tell you about how to fix. That is hard. But they are paid big bucks – they should figure it out

        Cities also have stabbings and shootings and crimes of all sorts ๐Ÿคจ

        They could maybe solve problems first – that would be awesome

        No one knows how to run things or there is so much red tape they can not run properly ๐Ÿคจ

        Grrr cities lol

        You are close to everything – if you like that.

        I kinda do / kinda donโ€™t lol … but I definitely like space and peace โœŒ๏ธ

        Cities have beautiful features / but they drop ball on some serious issues they should handle.

        Suburbs ok … but I just like being away ๐Ÿ™Œ … I do not like the California sardine homes ๐Ÿคจ

        I just like the peace in the country โค๏ธ

      • Yep, I like space, peace and quiet. Especially at night I don’t like noise, I like it quiet. Unless it’s natural noise, like an owl, or a loon, or rain.๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿง๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒง
        Yep, cities have lots of problems to fix, but for me they are just too crowded, too busy all the time, too noisy all the time.๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš“๐Ÿš•๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿš’๐Ÿ No, not for me, not at all. I’m a country boy.๐Ÿค 
        You can remember back in the 70s?๐Ÿค” You must have been real young back then, I mean real young. Good memory!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บ

      • Yes all your points about the city are correct! Not for me either โœŒ๏ธ Iโ€™m not really a country girl – but I like the peace, so I run to country. Lol… I am more girly preppy type … I donโ€™t really fit in country, but whatever, I like it here. โค๏ธ

        Yes I was born in 70โ€™s lol… โ€˜72 โœŒ๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

        I remember a lot from the 70โ€™s ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        But I grew up – coming of age – in the 80โ€™s and 90โ€™s

        I was little in 70โ€™s โœŒ๏ธ

      • Hey, if you like it in the country, then you fit! It is the best place to be for peace and quiet.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜บ
        I never would have guessed you were born in the 70s, I thought you were around 30.๐Ÿค” I’m just a bit older than you, but I don’t remember much about the 70s, except school.๐Ÿ™„
        Oh well, good thing I have my journal from back then!๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“šโœ๐Ÿ–‹

      • Yeah it is … as long as any country neighbors wives arenโ€™t out of town lol

        I have not found hermity enough yet. โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜ but yes … the only problem is I donโ€™t really ever wanna go back? Lol

        You get spoiled by country. โค๏ธ

        Mmm ๐Ÿค”… well extremely girly, not bug fan of bugs or spiders, so just out of element little – but Iโ€™ve been here awhile now so… I do better ish lol โœŒ๏ธ

        Itโ€™s the peace that I want – so that is what I go after

        Well I probably look 30, I have a young sorta spirit? And my figure is still same as always… except for breasts – those are new โœŒ๏ธ (cancer not vanity) – am good now (knock on wood)

        Oh I bet I could make you remember the 70โ€™s!!

        I was severely little – but I can remind you lol – maybe I do that lol โœŒ๏ธ

        Ohhh anything juicy in the journal? Lol

      • Well, bugs and spiders are not liked by very many people, including me! Actually bugs don’t bother me, it’s those big spiders that send me running for my hammer!๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธโš’๐Ÿ”จ๐Ÿช“
        Yes, you do get spoiled by the country, just so nice, relaxing, quiet, relaxing, no close neighbors, relaxing, great place for hiking, relaxing. That’s a lot of good reasons.๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿค”
        The only thing juicy in my journals is the juice I spilled in one of them one time!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ Mostly I just wrote about all my wild and wacky adventures!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜น
