Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. – Epictetus
Beautiful Bluebell and delicious Wild Garlic time is imminent.
No matter how bad life gets, and sometimes it gets really tough, I can honestly say that no thing or person has ever been able to lift me back to balance quite like my dearest and most cherished friend and ally – nature.
This week’s contribution to Narami’s Tuesdays of Texture (de monte y mar).
Ah, finally, a bit of sunshine to stimulate some spring growth.
This young fern has pushed its way through the detritus left after all the pine trees have been felled and hauled away.
Today’s contribution to Tuesdays of Texture (de monte y mar).
Now you may think I have totally lost the plot with an image of grass! But I was looking out of the window wondering whether I could bring myself to cut the grass – the first cut of the year.
It seemed sacrilege to ruin the beauty of the delicately fine new growth with its softness and fine young tips as it danced in the wind. It will never look this way again, well until next spring. Even the intensity of the lime green colour will have lost its edge (no pun intended) after the first cut.
But if it gets too long the mower will refuse to comply.
So I hit a compromise.
I left the most beautiful patches intact along with the clumps of wild flowers scattered all over the garden. I cannot bear to cut these down, they add such colour and beauty, the bees love them and smaller birds seem to find things to eat within them.
So there you have it – my Green Green Grass of Home lovingly appreciated once again, for my contribution to Tuesdays of Texture (de monte y mar), thanks Narami.
