Mother Nature

"Mother Nature has the power to please, to comfort, to calm and to nature one's soul" 
Anthony Douglas Williams

This is something I need to take to heart and remind myself of every day. There are always moments when, even the things I enjoy and love to do, leave me feeling a little overwhelmed. I feel a bit like Winnie the Pooh, in need of a honey sandwich  which I might even take to my bed...the ultimate comfort food!

Instead of filling my sheets with crumbs I have taken to the garden, not specifically for gardening you understand, but to feel the green under my feet and to enjoy the shade, the flowers, the quiet. 
I have put on my sneakers and taken to the streets to enjoy the head space and the neighbourhood fruits and flowers. 
I have taken an early moment to enjoy the golden light of sunrise.
I have stepped away from the couch or the kitchen to take in the sunset.
I have filled my back table with little pots of greenery and there are distinctly green corners in my house too...

I still feel a little swamped but, at least I am enjoying the view and the company of Mother Nature!

Do you have somewhere you retreat to?

  1. I'm loving the peace and quiet of your photos. I always feel calm in the garden especially when I am being creative with the potting. Nothing better than growing stuff from cuttings! A place to hide for hours.

  2. I love your succulent arrangements Kate. Have you been to the second hand shop on Williams Street near the show grounds? They have a dazzling and rather inspirational collection of succulents and cactus. It is worth putting some time aside to visit. Happy Sunday x

  3. Sometimes stepping out and enjoying nature is just what you need!


Thank you for your comments. I love knowing that you're reading and appreciate the time taken to comment.
