I did too. It definitely pays to sit in a garden if you can and just pay attention - even if we have to force ourselves at first

You made me think of this:

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.—Great God! I’d rather be
A pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.

William Wordsworth

Have a lovelier night

a reply to: blend57 hi, I love theses creatures, so cool you bond with them!
I was walking through a park one day and seen a H.bird with lovely fuscia marking and it went to a flower of the same exact color!
Beauty in the mists fleeting, yet a jewel in the minds eye... hold on to precious memories of the strolls through nature and beyond... there are scraggly, grubby folks wanting to settle down in my home town and just nature, harmless, just trying to learn the art of spare changing... and moving on upwards to respect and recognition... for being native American vets and others.
My buddy, and I worked this out.
Thank you for being you, kind and sweet.
See you around the boards.

Thank you, peppycat. I still only have the one little guy that comes around to the feeder. But he is beautiful to watch.

The last few days I have had dragonflies joining me on my runs. And the fire flies have been out at night. And there are roses and other flowers in bloom, the light, airy, fragrances from their petals get caught up in the wind and carried to my door. So, lots of beauty to be had out there if you choose to see it.

a reply to: blend57 in'd like to get lost in nature, I'm on a search for dragon flies...i'm happy you have moments enjoying the beauty of outdoors.
Thank you for sharing. There is a house fence I often pass by with sweet roses and they are the sort with scent carried on the breeze. I actually met a neighbor twice near there, once with a woman that insists on doing my hair for a pretty penny and the next time was rather sad day... to sad to relate.😢 spirit sent off into heaven.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
I'm glad you are here.

For you, peppycat : A flower, a dragonfly, and a lightening bug. So you always have a bit of nature around you..

I was sitting out the back door where the sparrows hang out in a big bush - when this sharp shinned hawk flew right at my face - after a sparrow I'm guessing. I'm hoping :-)

It missed - but then two female hummingbirds chased it out of the yard

Nature is hilarious
