Friday Facts, Fun & a Few Photos

Thoughtful Thursday ~ Rachel Carson

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." ~ Rachel Carson

What do you find beautiful in nature? 

Here are some of my favorite natural things (not surprisingly, many have been popular post subjects through the years):

a quiet snowfall

autumn leaves

dinnerplate dahlias

sunrise/sunset

the full moon

red squirrels

milkweed

orb weavers

thunderheads

an apple orchard in May

morning glories

dragonflies

cardinals

seashells

sunlight

seedheads

tomatoes on the vine

deer in the woods

hummingbirds

birch trees

violets

frost

Just reading this list makes me feel easy inside ~ and I'd imagine a small journal devoted to such simple, earthly pleasures would be both a comfort and joy. A page devoted to each item ~ with notes, photos and/or sketches. This might be a fun and meaningful project to do with the children - a unique and quite personal nature notebook for the year.

Happy Thursday, my friends!

:)
