Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

This time of year is all about abundance...

all the harvests coming in at once

overwhelming us with fruit, vegetables,



Nature doesn't differentiate...

just gives us, all at once, exactly what we ask for...

we just have to know how to deal with it all...

to be thankful...


to take care of each other...

and to prepare for the lean times.


  1. In the midst of abundance, a time of "enough."

  2. 'Abundance', unfortunately, also rhymes with 'waste', which I hate. You've prompted me to get on with my preserves this afternoon. Even in this heat!

  3. I like the person feeding the pigeon in weather-torn Manhattan.

  4. Thanks Chania...your house in Florida is looking grand!
    There is 'enough' for everyone, always, Rob-bear...if we only would realize it.
    To work Cro! To work!
    Abundance of the heart's a good thing.

  5. Sorry peeps...had to repost this as I kept losing that first photo...needed to be changed.

  6. that storm picture is amazing

  7. We all have something to be thankful for, some more so than others. The important thing to know is that money can't buy happiness any more than it can buy a dying man time so we have to make the most of what we have.

  8. Love all your 'lovely things', Annie

    Carpe Diem Rob!


Go on...make my day...
