When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection, love is born. -Thich Nhat Hanh
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out until sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. –John Muir
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. – Khalil Gibran

Ohhh, that is peaceful!
I felt the same way putting it together when it was raining outside yesterday 🙂 Thank you Cyndi!
A breathtaking series of peaceful images, Helen. The butterflies are really magnificent. I enjoyed your well chosen quotes too. 🙂 Wishing you a peaceful Sunday .
Thanks Sylvia! We have lots of butterflies right now in the salt marsh, White Peacocks, Monarchs and others. Have a beautiful Sunday!
Sounds idyllic. 🙂
You have to love Florida …
color is always better than black and white.
Love, hugs and blessings … ME
Yes, we have colors year round to enjoy. Much love and blessings to you too!
Nature inspires me and soothes my soul. You clearly have a passion for nature too. 🙂
Oh yes, the same passion 🙂 I find nature uplifting, inspiring, calming and healing. And of course there’s now plenty of research to prove us right too 😉
Yes, but I prefer to simply be and appreciate. 🙂
And that’s healthy 🙂
Breathtaking, peaceful, and all did I drink deeply. Thank you, Tiny, for this Sanctuary here today! Many Blessings! Love, Amy ❤
Thank you dear Amy ❤ I felt a need to experience peace and create this sanctuary yesterday. Happy you enjoyed the peace. Have a blessed week ahead. Much love, Tiny
Those quotes go well with your excellent photos!
Thank you kindly, Hien.
Delicious quotes to read before I head out for a Sunday afternoon walk, and for which, many thanks Helen.
Thank you Hariod. I trust you have enjoyed your afternoon walk.
Beautiful images and imagery. Thanks, Tiny.
Happy you enjoyed, Nancy. For a change not one bird flew in here today 🙂
Thank you smiley.

Perfect. As always. Peace be with you my friend, today, tomorrow, always. Koko
Thanks much, Koko! I wish you the very same my friend. XX
If every person in the world could spend time in nature, really breathing it in until it becomes a part of them… perhaps we would really have world peace!
I think so too! Have a great week ahead.
These photos are stunning, Tiny.
Thank you, Nancy!
This is so beautiful Helen. A meditation of quotes and pictures. Nature heals every part of our soul. Thankyou.
Thank you Karen. Nature’s healing abilities are just wonderful. Have a great week!
How beautiful Tiny, Shalom, and serene peace to you also, as the beaut around you re grounds and refreshes you for a new week!
Thank you. I will travel to Europe later this week and need to soak in all the warmth now…to be prepared for the cold…and snow 🙂 Have a wonderful, peace filled week.
Have a wonderful time, even if it is cold:-)
Nature is alive and loving! 🙂
Indeed it is!! Have a beautiful week H.J. & all 🙂
Thank you Tom.
Butterflies! Love the colors. Magic.
We need a little magic these days. Thanks David.
What a blessing you are! To take the time to share your beautiful photos, and inspirational quotes that go along with them, is such a wonderful gift to your readers! Thank you for sharing your talents with us:-)
Thank you for your kind comment Stephanie! Nature gives us many gifts to enjoy and share 🙂 Have a wonderful week.
Just like David above, I love butterflies, and the ones in this post are beautiful. Strangely, my sons are scared of them and say they’re creepy. It’s a reaction I struggle to understand.
Thanks Bun. I wonder too why they’d feel butterflies are creepy. Maybe you can do a research project and find out?
It is a bit odd, isn’t it? I asked them before, but they just said something about them flying in a scary way. Yes, makes no sense to me either. I think a research project is definitely needed. 🙂
It shall make good reading 🙂
I think so. Could turn science on its head.
🙂 I bet it will.
Love the quotes and the gorgeous photographs! Wishing you peace and many blessings, Tiny, and safe travels!
Thank you kindly, Barbara. I might see snow on my travels later this week…haven’t seen any for quite a while 🙂 Have a blessed week!
I love the quotes you chose 💛
