Perpetual beauty in nature

This week I’ve mainly spent in the garden with my Dad.

And it’s the perfect time of year to notice the perpetual beauty in nature that just keeps on giving.

Never does a tulip wonder if it is the right colour or too tall or too thin or fat or the wrong shape.

A rose doesn’t attempt to change its petals.

The grass just grows where it seeds or is planted.

Weeds spring up and they never feel inferior or wrong or bad or guilty.

The sun shines and clouds appear and the rain pours from the sky without a thought or a worry, because that is what nature intended.

Nature just does what it does best and gives it’s all to one beautiful thing – the beauty that it holds inside, ready to gift to the world, decorating gardens and parks and roadsides with daubs of colour and intoxicating scent. The pleasure of it is so fleeting that I can’t help but be in awe.

I’ve been feeling a bit emotional today, but acknowledging the perpetual beauty that sings to me from my own garden does not fail to be uplifting. Let’s meditate on that.

      Thank you! The garden definitely sold us the house. I’m going to do some posts about planting my veggie garden – a work in progress for the year. I do love the beautiful shapes and colours and smells of the flowers though and herbs are just so happy, green and useful xx

    Love the photos Rebecca. especially the raindrop ones. It continually astounds me, the difference in the climate, the days, your view, my view. I’m loving your view right now.

      Thanks Tracey – yes it is so bizarre to think that we are experiencing opposites in weather, most (all?) of the time. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to transport ourselves to each other’s little space, just for a day, an hour, a cup of tea? Dreaming, dreaming… x
