The spaces where we live are open, wide and safe and draw us outside to explore. Our daily walks, accompanied by Sir Steve dog, lead us down familiar paths but there is always much that we find, from the natural world, that draws us in to look more closely or invites us to stop a little while and just watch.
On our most recent walk, in our neighbourhood, this is what we found:
The transparent skeleton of a leaf.
Fluffy yellow flowers beginning to form on wattle.
A lone fungus in the grass to the side of the path.
A colourful and beautiful rainbow lorikeet.
Greenish-grey lichen on a tree trunk.
All this is just a very short walk from our front door. All this to wonder about. All this to remind us of nature's ever-present beauty.
I hope you have time for a walk in your own neighbourhood this weekend. I wonder what you might find!
