Let Nature In

Sunday, July 07, 2013

" A morning glory at my window satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books." Walt Whitman

Life sure has gotten into a technology lollapalooza . We spend our days with high speed computers, cable, smart phones ,e-readers to name a few.

Sometimes we forget to spend time with the beauty of nature that is around us.

Unplug for a while today and spend some time with nature. I plan on enjoying my pool . If it ever cools down walking. When the shade comes I will spend some much needed time in my garden .I know I need it as much as the plants I am growing do.

Today I will look for nature . I will watch the honey bees on my flowers. I will watch the birds drink from my birdbath on the front lawn. I will watch the squirrels play in the trees. I will try to watch a flower as it opens . Such a tiny miracle in front of us everyday that we miss because we are plugged in.

So unplug today and plug into nature.

    LOl I have let nature in.... we have those tiny ants and I have scoured my kitchen yesterdasy in the heat only to wake up to them again. I have used all the diff ideas, remeides on line, even some I know and also left out food to see and they don't even bother they go whereever, but ae driving me. I put out some sweet water with borax nope, so put out some without and still nope... but they are on floor, some on counter, on outside of cupboards appliances. I even pulled everything out and washed appliances, walls no idea what else to do. Quite af ew in the neighbour hoood have them. YUK

    Wonderful words of wisdom. I send my kiddos outside every day to enjoy what nature is giving them. I love to sit and look at the flowers and listen to the birds and just be one with nature. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!
