Beauty on my way

Noticing and slowly taking in all the beauty of spring.

Last Sunday, I had a long walk around the neighbourhood, 5000 steps! I spotted this rose bush on my way.

The poppies are gorgeous in a park close by.

During the week I walked by a path of gorgeous peonies. I wish I could put their fragrance in a bottle and bring it home.

And yesterday, at lunch time, I was surprised with the beauty of these alliums in the university campus.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly our whole life would change.”  

Buddha

Wishing a great week to you, and remember to slow down and enjoy a little bit of beauty on your way. It can be the beauty of the flowers if you are in spring or the beauty of the leaves if you are in the autumn. It can be a beauty of a smile, a hug, eye contact with a strange coming in your direction or a simple thank you when you weren’t expecting it.

    You have a lovely peaceful neighborhood — if I lived there, I would go for long walks often 🙂 And of course, as you say, there are little bits of beauty everywhere.

    1. Hi Meg, yes! my neighborhood is lovely, but the weather not so much, it’s difficult to have a pleasant day, most of the time too cold, or raining like today. But do I enjoy to have long walks around here in any weather.
