Nature Lessons 89

We have many different sides to our personalities, we show these different sides of us depending on our relationship and desires.  There is the warmth and softness we show to those we love, the fruitfulness we show to attract and pull people in towards us and the more protective front we use to cover up or slip away from those we are not so comfortable with.  There are complexities to our  individual personality traits, they change with the seasons and are dependant on our needs at any one time.  A good thing to bare in mind is that whilst we are displaying one aspect of ourselves, we never know who else might be watching and absorbing what we are putting out from somewhere else in the garden.

Nature Lessons 81

Does the flower compare itself to others, does the bee only choose the most beautiful.  Does the bird only nest in the most beautiful branch of a tree.  In nature beauty goes much deeper than the surface, beauty is measured in goodness.  Those who let their spirit shine will always attract others.  Beauty after all is in the eye of the beholder, those who can see the depth and goodness in the spirit beneath the surface.

Farewell to Autumn

Yesterday I took a walk locally to try and catch what I could of the remaining flowers in my local park.  I don’t have a garden, although I do have two window boxes and pots on the front steps.  The window boxes I plant twice a year, summer flowers for my mum and a winter selection for my step father, he was Scottish so there has to be heather.  Both of them loved their flowers, nature and wildlife so it’s fitting I plant for them. I’m on the first floor so I’m hopeful the frost won’t hit too early.

I love nature, you might have got an inkling of this from my blog, but this is new for me, well newish anyway.  There was a time I hated looking at photos without someone in them, I couldn’t see the point, now I’m totally different, I try to reduce the traffic and that includes people.  I thought I would share some of the photos I have taken lately on my phone as a tribute to Autumn.  I’m going to have to hold some back of course for my daily posts 😉

Nature Lesson 73

We are all at different stages of growth, age is certainly a consideration, but so are our experiences as we travel through life.  Some of us will face many challenges, that will, if we learn the lessons from them, enhance our growth and development.  Others, who may appear to have an easy life, might be much farther behind because they have not shared those same experiences.  We cannot judge others by what they know or don’t know because we all receive individual lessons connected to our own journey, each of our spirits grows at the pace as it should.
