My grateful photo’s often are of things in nature. As I’ve got older, I notice nature more. Nature is beautiful, soothing and actually quite therapeutic! It makes me happy. I see amazing things that when I was younger would never have been noticed. Some are typically beautiful (like flowers). Some not so typically beautiful, but still I am amazed at the strength and resilience I see in nature. Today, as I went to get the clothes off the line, my lavender plant caught my eye. It is in a herb garden which is up against the garden shed. The lavender flowers are just beautiful. The colour is such a soothing, calm colour is it not? The garden shed is a tad boring, so I jazzed up the photo with a bit of a bokeh effect.
Today I’m grateful for the moment during a mundane household task when my eye caught my lavender plant and the smile and sense of calm that came over me as a result.
