Simple Beauty Day 38

After a tough day at work, I took Odin for a good two hour walk. The pink wild flowers caught my attention throughout our venture. We stopped under the tree in the bottom corner for awhile to catch some shade and a cool breeze. Shortly after, we spotted a monarch butterfly flying near the tree tops. I asked out loud “may I take your picture?” And a few moments later, it agreed 😊💞. I’m glad I took this walk today, it always amazes me how much a walk in nature can cleanse the heart and mind. ❤

Grateful of another refreshing day, a red clover plie’s (pled-ays) in the summer rain. ❤

*I can’t believe I’ve been posting everyday for a month now! I was debating on ending this series but after today’s picture, I feel renewed again 😉. So, I think I’ll continue this for another month! Yay! 💞 See you all tomorrow!

Simple Beauty Day 26

I came across a few poke berry bushes and the yellow flowers. I’m not sure what they are called though, some of the plants I take pictures of can’t be identified through the PlantSnap app.

After I took pictures of the poke berry bushes I saw this little guy hanging out on a leaf. ❤ today turned out to be a good day!

Simple Beauty Day 20

Sweetpeas, my favorite tree, a visiting neighbor cat and black eyed Susan’s. I searched everywhere for the name of the small flowers in the bottom corner, just couldn’t find it… Do you know its name?

Simple Beauty Day 16

Whenever I feel like bursting from seams from “what am I doing and where do I go next,” I always find myself at the base of an old tree. As if to seek guidance from a grandparent far older than my own, I sit and contemplate about life. The reason for it all and the direction of where its going.

For some reason these giant plants calm me down, slow my wild thoughts and remind me to take things slow.

“Be at ease, let the wind through my leaves help you breathe. Everything’s going to be okay.”

I almost didn’t post today. Its was a hard day at work and the gloominess of the day made me want to sleep it away. But something in me desperately needed to clear my heart and soul. Then, a thought of my favorite nearby tree came to mind. So I took off my shoes and walked to my release.

I have been coming to this tree ever since I moved here. In fact, any place I have moved to I have found a special tree to share my thoughts about life with. These gentle beings are the best listeners. After about an hour of inner rambling I finally felt like I could breathe again. I still don’t know what step to take in my life, but at least now I feel like myself again. ❤

I am so grateful to have been able to live near nature all my life. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without someplace to go in nature. It has been my greatest mentor and therapist. 👣🍃💞
