It is a Small World After All

This afternoon, I walked down into the lower part of the property. It is a little weedy right now. We do not cut down the wildflowers and grasses right away at least until spring has taken hold and creatures have made their way out of the winter homes. They provide such a supply of food for the birds.

I was struck by how much beauty there is in the smallness of the nature around us. As is typical with most people, we see and marvel over the big things and scarcely notice the beauty only seen if an effort is made to see it.

I took advantage of some wood hubby has stacked in the bed of the truck and took a few photos. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did taking them.

  1. The small things are indeed just as fascinating. The tiny life on one fallen tree can be as interesting to watch as the herds of animals on the plains of Africa. You just have to take the time to stop and look.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. These are fabulous, Maggie. You are also clearly very at home with the new editor – I’ll have to come for lessons on how to put captions on the photos instead of under them which looks messy on my blog 🙂

    1. Mary, I thought I would be the last to say anything positive about the editor, but I am discovering how it all works together. We should have a global Zoom on the editor! A Zoom see and share. I aam glad you enjoyed the photos. It is such a glorious time of year.

  3. Lovely all of them. I think that when we are with very small children we take the time to notice, as they do, the tiniest things. I will say that quarantine has awakened my awareness of the natural world right around me.

    1. I think you are right, Elizabeth. I remember my children being small and always close to the ground. Their little eyes were like microscopes!I do love the way my grandchildren see the earth with such enthusiasm,
