Natures Art

NATURE is what we see, 
The Hill, the Afternoon-
Squirrel, Eclipse, the Bumble-bee,
Nay-Nature is Heaven.
Nature is what we hear,
The Bobolink, the Sea-
Thunder, the Cricket-
Nay- Nature is Harmony.

Nature is what we know
But have no art to say,
So impotent our wisdom is
To Her simplicity.

_ Emily Dickienson

This is what I saw on an early morning run this past week- captured with my phone so- not great quality but none the less a great masterpiece of Nature.  There is no substitute for time spent in nature -  it anchors us in this world full of rushing and electronics.  It calms us in a way that nothing else can. I just love being outside, in the yard, the garden, the woods!

We are having a lovely stretch this week- but spending most of my days inside at work . . . hoping it will still be nice by the weekend. :)
