My Garden – Mon Jardin – Mi Jardin – Mein Garten – Daily Adventures & Thoughts

No matter the language, my garden is my paradise. To watch the lovely birds that nest in the trees and bushes. The bees, butterflies are such a joy to see.

The beauty of a sunflower … on a sunny day


Saturday, August 17, 2013

Yesterday I sat outside for a few minutes, an opportunity to enjoy a tiny bit of silence from the noise of neighbourhood construction.

And my eyes fell on the back of this sunflower, growing away in a container of beans.

I was struck by the immense beauty of each detail of this sunflower grown from a humble seed .. planted by the birds.

Such amazing gracefulness in every particle of this amazing plant.

From the perfection of the cheerful yellow yellow petals to the fine lines of the leaf bracts to the strength of the sturdy stem.

Another example of the magic of nature.

I love dogs and currently do not have any, so I am a dog-mommy when I can be. Gardening is my passion. I've always loved birds and I'm learning a bit at a time from all the Birders that I meet. Swan Lake is my second home! .
