Sometimes you can find beauty most anywhere. I guess the key is you just have to see. Sometimes with the eyes, sometimes the heart.
I captured this photo today outside of a McDonalds. There was the most beautiful bed of flowers right outside the doors and butterflies were fluttering all around. I thought it would be impossible to capture a photo of one of them with my Kodak 7.2 point and shoot, but lo and behold, I did!
A Methodist church in our downtown area has this lovely pumpkin patch. I drove by there the other day and I just had to get out and take a few photos. I think they were selling them. The church lawn looked so lovely sprinkled with these big ole' orange balls!
I had a Martha Stewart moment the other day. The decorating kind--not the getting in trouble with the law kind *smile*. If you've read my blog awhile you've probably noticed I don't post pictures of home interiors much because well...I'm not very good at it. I had a moment though and put together this little fall scene at my front door. The flowers are real--the purple ones--not the yellow or orange ones. I thought I would enjoy them as long as I could cause...well...I'm not good at growing flowers either. You might be asking--well what IS this woman good at?
We visited this quaint little Amish bakery right outside of Starkville, MS yesterday and they too had gorgeous pots of flowers outside of their doors. I didn't get to take many pictures because I was busy drooling over all the sweets in the shop!
This is the one inside shot of the bakery I took. These are the windows close to the little eating area. Something always seems to draw my eyes to windows!
As I've gotten older I tend to notice the beauty of nature more and more. How does one look at trees, flowers, birds and butterflies and not KNOW there is a God? I don't understand that.
How about you? Have you noticed anything beautiful lately?
