Simple Pleasures

Garden Frost Oct 18

Explore. Slow down to appreciate what surrounds you. Enjoy the sound of the rain, look for the shimmer in the frost and snow, and the bursts of color nature provides. Keep a journal of ideas and scribble illustrations. Take pleasure in seasonal feasts and harvest. Tell stories. Mark your legacy. Cherish handmade. Try your hand at a new hobby. Wood burning, bird watching, painting, and gardening. Renew and restore something old into new. Everyday, take a moment to slow down to admire the moment of the season. Breathe deeply, live beautifully and choose kindness.

Taking in the simple pleasure of the season. An Autumn Frost.

  1. Photos were brilliant, we had our first frost but it didn’t kill the fushcias or bedding plants so our garden is still blooming lovely. There is something beautiful in nature wherever you look, but sometimes you really have to look beyond what you actually see. Your words are inspiring.

  2. Gosh I love the images here but also your words. I love the sound of the rain and it’s been raining quite often here. I’ve bundled up, made a hot drink, and gone outside to sit sheltered but still in the rain. Little peaceful moments are so special! Hope you’re smiling today, lovely! πŸ™‚
