been thinking a lot of the beauty around us…

four years ago I was just home from a big surgery and trying to lean through the pain…

I remember looking at my beautiful flowers, in the house and outside in the garden and how they made me feel better… beauty does heal…

the sky this morning was filled with many colours and cloud shapes…

over the last few weeks I’ve taken a few pictures of some other amazing shapes…

the spiral architecture of this datura as it opens is so amazing and beautiful… I look at every one of the blooms as they open, in awe of the breathtaking structure

this mandevilla is blooming like crazy… so many flowers as it spreads out of its container… think we’ve had one on the deck every year for at least a decade… sadly they only last a few years going in and out of the house… it also has a wonderful architecture as the bloom slowly prepares to open…

past its prime, this dahlia is still amazingly beautiful…

spent a while sitting on a bench beside this lovely flower bed on Portage Avenue recently… love the shades of green and pops of colour…

always remind myself to take the time to see the beauty around me…
