A million things to do.
Scrambling to find my keys,
to unlock the garage,
to get the food,
to feed the fish in the pond.
Then I notice,
I slow down,
A sweet little girl and her bird.
Surrounded by fallen leaves in shades of yellow, brown, red, and orange.
Just in front of her,
where all else has gone to sleep for the winter,
a single yellow Lantana.
reaching towards the sky,
as though it is the beginning of Spring.
Rounding the corner to the courtyard,
something so tiny it should have been missed,
and trampled underfoot,
catches my eye.
Two tiny trees,
taking root among the gravel,
a lichen covered twig.
Can you see them?
Two tiny trees.
One behind the other.
The second even tinier than the first.
A small lichen covered twig.
So interesting when taking the time to notice...
The courtyard urn is full of Pansies.
Their sweet faces so bright and cheerful.
They lift our spirits,
carrying us from the dormant months of Fall and Winter,
all the way to Springtime.
Enjoying a few indoors.
Pansies make the sunlit room even brighter...
Hope you have a slow a restful weekend full of beautiful things you enjoy!
