Connected – C’est La Vie

Enforced connection.
This rogue seed must have floated into the house.
The parcel tape left lying open, ready to ensnare.
What were the odds of it becoming stuck to it?!
A sight to behold, I just had to ‘snap’ it.
Its delicate connection to the tape, barely visible.
Suspended in the air around it.
Just like life.
Connected.
Whether we like it or not.
Just as it is.
C’est la vie.

Interesting Fact: Up until the 1800s people would pull grass out of their lawns to make room for dandelions and other useful “weeds” like chickweed, malva, and chamomile. (fact from http://mydandelionisaflower.org/did-you-know/). Just think we could actually be eating our lawns instead of pouring chemicals on it and hours cutting it!

A Rare and Beautiful Sunset

Since last November, the North West of Scotland has had the worst weather in history. Having experienced probably the longest winter on record with wall to wall grey for nine months, it was an absolutely euphoric experience to enjoy a day of warm temperatures, dry weather and a spectacular sunset.

Makes you really appreciate being alive.

An Inspirational Moment – Weird Sunset

There is so much ‘out there’ that inspires me. I wouldn’t know where to being to whittle it down to anything specific and much of it is very much a ‘moment’ thing.

Though, a dominant inspiring force for me is nature. Observing clouds, seasonal changes and weather patterns is almost as natural to me as breathing.

So I’m sharing one of my wild sunset images with you this week.

It was so weird, it blew me away!

No Photoshop, no filters, just as it was – in that moment.

Flower of Scotland

This beautiful yet lethal flower, the Scottish Thistle has some wonderful history.

A delightful, brief and humorous history is better explained here:
