flora and fauna


there is beauty all around us!













around every corner...






...at each stop made in the road...




...upon closer observation...


life and death...

things for necessity...



things for the sheer beauty of being...



food for the birds...




a feast for the eyes...









scents for the nose...






texture for the touch...






little gifts of pleasure like the open wings of a butterfly...








hidden treasures...







all here for our enjoyment.

Great post with some of the little things that a lot of us don't notice. I'll have to remember to look down more often.

The Blue Ridge moutains are fantastic. I need to get out of the Mid-west more often!
