These are wild flowers — I have no idea what they are called.

Beauty I see

A yellow and beautiful mushroom
Saw this beautiful yellow mushroom (maybe a telluride, I am not sure).

Below in my mother’s garden, this little guy may be a vegetarian.

Mr Lizard was hanging out in the garden. The green is another type of spinach (called malabar) I will document its growth in a week or two.

I saw this turtle crossing the park. They are such shy creatures.

Met this one a different day while walking.

This is broad-leaf thyme we use for cooking, its scientific name is Plectranthus amboinicus, we planted it and curiously it began growing in this odd rose-like pattern. Even though it has regular leves now, the rose-like pattern still remains. I had never seen it grow like that before. 

I find beauty in many things and in many places.

Stay well, stay safe … keep exploring

God’s painting: look at these gorgeous colors. 

 

On my way home from work last evening, I am met with the masters handiwork.

God is painting again today. For me it is a sign of hope, He is not yet through with us.

 

 

 

A picture of the sky painted all beautiful pastels. Simply beautiful.

Sunset

Saw this beautiful sunset on my way home yesterday.

I of course, am always looking towards the heavens. I love looking at the sky!

On my way home last evening I could not resist taking these pictures. A plane had left that streak across the sky and the way the light from the setting sun was reflected there looked like the sun was shining directly out of that sliver.

I thought it was beautiful.

Some nuances you just cannot capture with a camera. It perhaps the way our brain process what we see.

I was just happy to appreciate God’s beauty.

Stay safe and be well!

Peace.

Yesterday

So yesterday I was off from work! Whooo!! I awoke early, of course, the young-uns needed mothering.

I had a doctor’s appointment, it had been set for 09:00 am but the rain was carrying on fiercely outside, so I knew that I had better leave with plenty of time to spare.

My daughter took the bus and my seven year old loves to walk to school. However with the combination of the rain and cold, this was not the best option for him so his dad drove him to school.

It took me about one hour and forty minutes meandering my way through side streets as the highways were a parking lot.

I arrived late for my appointment, of course.

Later on I was on Word Press and Gee was looking out the window and saw this red tree outside. He says he is learning to see nature through my eyes now as I see the beauty of God’s handiwork while he just sees “things in a space”. Lol.

So he said, “you have to take a picture of that for your blog.” I think at first he felt a little left out from the time I had been spending with “my blog”, but yesterday I can see he is beginning to appreciate the joy it brings me. Plus I share your stories with him.

The tree in the above picture in all its red fall majestic glory. I see the beauty that our God has placed here for us to temper the hard edges that life can sometimes bring.

The beautiful differences in everything he has created, the diverse shapes and colors. They shout ‘hallelujah’ as a testament to his love for us, and if we are discerning and silent we can hear it.

So I shuffled outside towards the end of the day to take my pic before it got too dark. What a sight I must have been, toes peeking out of my red and blue flip flops and a pepper-mint colored robe over my clothes.

There is beauty in every season. Especially the cool stillness of an autumn day.
