A Day in My Garden

I had a lovely day in my garden today. I paused from daily chores to enjoy the sun's warmth on my face and noticed bumble bees, birds and the two resident rabbits enjoying the sun as well. True happiness. Fortunately, I had camera in hand and took a couple of photos, which I will add here. I believe nothing in this world gives me more pleasure (besides spending time with my husband and family) than to be outdoors. I feel it is important to pause from the everyday nonsense and rigmarole that so often takes a hold of us and which can slowly drain a person of energy. Take a breather - get outdoors and spend a moment, or two, to observe what is around you - the singing bird, the bumble bee immersed in a flower, the colour of the flower, the blue sky. This was my day today. Oh yes, I did manage to do a little gardening!

Here are a couple of photos I took this afternoon. Thanks for viewing! Michelle

Those photos are exquisite...!

Bumble bees in February? Good grief, what is going on???

You live in the most beautiful place on earth -- well next to the Canary Islands, that is. :-)

Hi Michelle, You have such a lovely garden with a wonderful, peaceful feel. Your close-up photos are amazing. I got a link to your site from your mom. She said my garden reminded her of yours! My son lives in Oregon, so I have visited that area some. The Pacific Northwest has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. I live in the southeast part of USA in Alabama, zone 7b. I have 3.5 partially wooded acres and I do love the woodlands.

Again more gorgeous macros of your flowers!!!! The daffodils and tulips are slowly coming up here. We are north of you so we are probably a wee bit behind you. I love spring!
