Take Time to Do More than Just Smell the Flowers Certified Habitat 139,583

Beyond our need to create beautiful spaces

Deciduous azalea and ajunca

Beyond our need to have color and scent in our lives

Flowers provide a vital link in our existence

Look closer at the flowering plants in your yard

You will be amazed at the variety and number of species that frequent your plantings

But even more amazing is the knowledge that without these pollinators we would not have our orchards, gardens and meditative spaces.

Sitting quietly beside a Daisy mum in my garden I watched and captured in photos many of the creatures who frequented the plant.

Take a moment in time and sit outside in a green space or garden. Choose a plant to focus your attention and watch life unfolding around you.

  1. Wonderful inspiration…seeing things through your pictures makes me very thoughtful about how I interact with my own garden.

  2. I love how your capture the wonder and beauty of nature, Bonnie. And even more so your narrations are like a melody. Thanks for helping start the week out by invoking smiles and calm. 🙂
