Patterns In Nature

To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment. 
~ Jane Austen


Bales of Hay

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful, by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet, and learn to be at home.

The Flight of a Monarch Butterfly

I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.
 ― Sylvia Plath

Happiness is ..... seeing a Monarch Butterfly
This was the first one I have seen for 2015. 
I hope to have many more sightings


American Goldfinch - Thistle Bender

Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.
 — Mandy Hale

Although not as brightly colored as her male counterpart, 
this Female American Goldfinch was looking quite
fetching in the thistle.

In The Catbird Seat

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. 
 ― Marcus Aurelius

Does your mind ever "race" at night?  Mine does!  I'll wake up in the middle of the night and a million different things will run through my head.  Sadly, most of these things that pop up at night are filled with negativity and self-doubt.  Last night this happened, and I REALLY wanted to go back to sleep, so as I lay there I repeated positive things in my mind.  
Those I repeated over and over, and I got back to sleep and feel refreshed this morning.
Positive thinking can work wonders!


Spread Your Petals

It doesn't matter who you are, 
 where you come from. 
 The ability to triumph begins with you. 
 ~ Oprah Winfrey

 The key word is BEGINS - 
Nothing was ever started without a beginning!
