These are just a few of my simple garden delights.
This toadstool sprouted up one morning after quite a few days of rain and damp weather. I watched it grow from infancy to old age in a matter of four days. What a marvelous, yet simple thing to behold. Each day I eagerly waited to see what its next state of maturation would look like. All the time hoping no harm would befall it, and worrying that I might come out to find it crushed or destroyed.
On a late summer evening not long before sunset as I walked among the flowers, I made my way through the beds of roses and this lovely lady in pink gave me reason to stop enjoy her delicate scent and marvel at her wonders.
Early morning dew has a way of casting its magic across any landscape. In the grass, way down low, I lay quietly. I knew I would be covered with the wetness of the ground, but that didn’t matter. There was a whole world of dancing lights at my disposal. From near to far I watched as the sun rose higher until everything was golden and glistening! A tiny glorious moment in time, twinkling forever!
These small moments alone with nature are so important. They give us the much needed connection to something greater than ourselves. The time to simply watch and listen to the world around us. A few moments away from the rush of our lives, and the constant connection to technology that we are so immersed in.
What simple things delight you, make you curious? What do you enjoy in this wonderful natural world around us?

What a lovely collection and the words ring so true, Rachel. It’s these quiet times, when we immerse ourselves in nature at its intimate best, that we can really appreciate the beauty that so often we rush past n the way to something bigger. Slowing down is hard but it pays dividends.
HI Andy, Thanks so much!! I know it takes a bit of doing to slow down and look sometimes, but it’s always worth it in the end!! 🙂
