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.
