I was walking my dog yesterday up a winding narrow lane near my home, wonderful shades of green all around. When I glanced through an open gate I saw this stunning scene. The greens and blues seemed so saturated. There’s a photo for the blog right there, I thought. (I also took a photo with Penny, my Boxer dog in it, that one will come in a week or two.)
Although it really shouldn’t, it never ceases to amaze me how getting into nature helps my mood. A good day turns into a great day, a bad day can at least seem normal. I love the rain (we get a lot of it in Ireland) and I adore strong winds. And the three sunny days we get each year are wonderful as well.
Yesterday just after I took this photo I read a great piece by Dr Michael Murray on the Importance of being Awe Inspired in your life. It really resonated. I think you’ll enjoy it.
