Beauty in Small Things

You might be forgiven for thinking that with so many knit and crochet posts recently, the garden has been a bit neglected. Not so, almost every time there’s a break in the rain I’ve been out, planting for autumn, tidying the beds and harvesting fruit and veg.

Yesterday I promised myself an hour outside and  when blue skies finally broke through, out went the washing, on went the wellies and I weeded, raked and picked the very last tomatoes -not a single green tomato this year – that has never happened to me before!

And (here’s an admission) I accidentally left my reading glasses on, which meant I spotted these  …

I startled this bug as I picked sweet peas

The rasberries were covered in shield bugs

A tiny feather

lesson learnt? Sometimes it’s good to stand still and just look, finding the beauty in small things.

  1. I love the tiny ruffled feather! It is good sometimes to just slow down and appreciate what is around us, instead of always rushing to get things done. I think we sometimes put too much pressure on ourselves, which means we don’t get the enjoyment that we should while doing things.

    Thanks Anne – makes me realise how much I miss by being too vain to wear my glasses!
