Sweet Beginnings


Fiddleneck

Fiddleneck

We get so many chances to make a fresh start, and how rich our souls could be if only we would recognize them. With each new day we have the opportunity to start and savor a sweet beginning. This fiddleneck flower displays charm and innocence by curling its head and enticing us to look closer and find the sweet secrets it has in store for us. If we were a ladybird, a bee or butterfly we’d be looking at the face of a pleasant repast.

There is no food for our tummies here, but there is something for the soul!  The fiddleneck invites us to lose our troubles, even for a moment as we gaze upon this new beginning and…be happy! If we stop and look we can find inspiration, a glimmer of hope, or a smile – sustenance as simple as that. So I’ll accept the invitation and start with a simple smile. I’ll let my smile spread and beam and be the start of a beautiful day that will hold as many delights as my eyes and hears can be open to. In this simple way, I shall begin my day.

Dear neighbor, I hope you do the same!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.

  1. I’m really happy to see people finding beauty and wisdom in the simple and little things around us like you do. Things that so many people ignore.

      Thank you Niki. I sincerely appreciate your comment, and like mindedness! The simple things in life are the sources of some of my greatest joys. If it seems we’ve got nothing to look at and find meaning in, chances are we’ve got our blinders on.
