It’s the little things …

Autumn is the time of year to wander through wooded and natural areas with sharp eyes focused on the little things.

Little things such as an intricate forest of moss surrounding a glacier-deposited rock.



The symmetry of seed pods standing tall in remembrance of the flowers that once were.



A lichen-draped boulder that anchors a planted bed during flower-showy summer months, but takes center stage during autumn.



Be thankful for these little things … the things we often take for granted.

Be thankful for the simple beauty that surrounds you, be it lichen, moss and seed pods, or a child’s soft cheek, or the hand-hold of a loved one.

Just be thankful.

    Joene, Thanks for the reminder to slow down and simply enjoy. At this time of the year it’s easy to get caught up in everything that ‘needs’ to be done rather than just enjoying what happening right now. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family & friends.

      Thank you, Debbie. I hope you take time to stop and enjoy your family and meal, and have many laughs and happy moments.

    What beautiful pictures and prose. I agree with Debbie: it’s time to slow down and be thankful for what’s really important and always, always, be aware of beauty. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    I love how you picked such ordinary things on the ground and found the true charm in them, then showed it to us. Beautiful.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
