Wildlife in the garden. Life finds a way and it comes in many different sizes. We are celebrating the month of May by capturing brief moments of life in the garden. Look through a tiny window and peer into the small world lying beneath our feet. Get outside and view the world around you.
The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.

Bless you and yours
As well as the cottage you live in.
May the roof overhead be well thatched
and those inside be well matched.

Sunflowers, sunshine and a beautiful blue sky...can't go wrong with that.
“The gaudy leonine sunflower Hangs black and barren on its stalk,
And down the windy garden walk The dead leaves scatter,- hour by hour”

I think the tendrils winding through the ivy leaves are fascinating. They swirl and spiral in different patterns creating captivating art forms.
"The best place to seek God is in a garden.
You can dig for him there."

Orange petals dance in the light and twirl in the breeze.
I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself. And I find sufficient purpose for my day." ~Robert Brault

When the rain stops...or the thunderstorm passes, I find peace in the garden. Raindrops drip everywhere, and the flowers droop slightly from their weight. It is quiet for the moment...now the frog sings.
"The only noise now was the rain, pattering softly with the magnificent indifference of nature for the tangled passions of humans." ~Sherwood Smith

Late in the evening just before dark, these little blossoms open up. They are so vibrant and beautiful swaying in the breeze.

This small bloom was growing on the fence by the lake. It can't seem to decide whether it is a pink flower or a yellow flower. It is still very beautiful.
"We don't find joy; it finds us, often surprising us when it arrives---making us smile for no apparent reason, breaking into a tune when no one is around to hear it." ~Nicole Johnson
