A Perfect Day

Today was one of those days that no matter what else remained to be done until another day, it was almost mandatory to go for a nature walk. A local garden, Smith-Gilbert Gardens located in Kennesaw, Georgia, was the garden of choice. There was a nice breeze, and not too hot (just the way I like it) and so many flowers were in bloom. What a perfect day!

Bear Sighting

So what do you do if you’re a tourist in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and you just have to see a resident bear? Based on my personal observations this week, here’s what NOT to do …
1) Do not park your car in the middle of the highway and get out to join the others who have parked their cars properly on the sides of the road.
2) Do not grab your toddler out of the car parked in the middle of the road and walk hand-in-hand to view the bears.
3) Do not decide to check under the hood while your car is parked in the middle of the road while traffic is backing up behind you.
4) If you disobey 1 through 3, do not be surprised if the ranger comes to get you.

Time Out

With everything that’s going on in the world, today is a new opportunity to take another ‘time out’ … that is, to steer away from anything that is causing negativity and moving towards the positive things. Find a flower and escape!

Finding Peace and Beauty

One of my favorite things to do is to photograph plants in their natural setting. It is exciting to go to a local botanical garden at various times of the year and check out the latest specimens which are in bloom. When there’s not much blooming on the outside, there’s always the inside.  Here’s one of the many orchids I found on a recent trip on the inside at the local botanical garden. It is worth searching for peace and beauty.

Mimicking the Butterfly

On a recent trip to a small botanical garden, there were many beautiful butterflies flying from one bloom to the next. There were yellow ones, black ones, brown ones and orange ones. How graceful and carefree they seemed, focused on what was important to them — one flower at a time. Maybe we could all take some lessons from these beautiful creatures by trying to make the most of life wherever we land!
