Friday's Letter

Dear Mother Nature,

You really are rather beautiful.  As I was walking through the woods today I was thinking how lucky I am to have so much of you right on my doorstep.

When I was a child, I loved and savoured you so much.  Nature walks, watercolours, notes, pressed flower projects, rose petal perfume, my Enid Blyton yearbook which is still one of my most cherished possessions.  And then gradually other interests took your place all that passion fell away.  A few short years ago I know I wouldn't have had the time or the energy or the interest to notice the tiny little details that make this world so magical.  I am so grateful that I listened to the wake up call, bought my camera and began this little creative journey of mine.  I had missed so much.

But not any more.  I am here and I am drinking it in and sharing it with my daughter, in whom I see the same childhood passion for you.

Sometimes we get distracted.  But you are so amazing we will always come back to you.

Love, Me


  1. A touching love note to Mother Nature. I am glad you picked up that camera too so that you could find that passion again. Happy weekend.

  2. Beautiful image. I love the warm feeling.

  3. What a beautifully personal tribute to Mother Nature and how you have found her again. This image is a perfect example of those tiny magical details that we can so easily miss - and how photography slows us down enough to see them.

  4. Absolutely loved this post, and can totally relate. I really appreciated nature and the beauty it holds when I was younger. As I've grown up I seem to have forgotten and its definitely time to get that love and magic back xx

  5. I'm glad you've come back to your old friend and that you are introducing her to your daughter. Modern times are so-o-o intense that it's increasingly important to be able to relate to something that is relative unchangeable.

  6. Happy Monday, Becs. :)
    This is such a lovely ode to Mother Nature! ♥ ♥ ♥

  7. Tuesday, LOL! I'm such a sleepy head! ;D
