Treasures We Found in Nature

We spent Saturday at Medrona Marsh, in Torrance, CA. Such beautiful treasures to be found.

But, first, a game of rugby in the parking lot.

And then, cacti to admire.

We discovered that if you caress them, gently, they won’t hurt you, not one little bit (his nails are now cut and cleaned!).

We found caterpillars… lots of them. We think they are monarchs but we’re confused that they aren’t eating Milkweed… or is it?

And magical places.

I caught a loving daddy/daughter moment that melted a mom’s heart.

My heart, right there, in a puddle at their feet.

Our weekly nature walks bring us so much peace. They ground us and bring us together and set us free. My only wish is that we could be out in nature like this every day.

Blessings and magic,

Donni

52 Weeks in Nature : Week 4

Fifty Two weeks in nature… a series of photos each week to show what our nature looks like. For those who are participating, thank you… it’s been amazing to see how different the seasons are from place to place… and how beautiful.

These are the colors of Southern California right now. It’s taken me a while to love them, many years, in fact. I preferred the lush green of other places but these browns and grays and yellows have grown on me.  “The landscape belongs to the person who looks at it…” – Ralph Waldo Emerson”

 

Week 4/52

Each week we feature a photo, or a series of photos, that showcase what is happening in nature around us… something that we have found particularly enchanting. At the end of the year, we will have 52 weeks of seasonal beauty.

I hope you’ll participate in 52 Weeks in Nature and leave a link to your site in the comments below so that we can all see the beauty you have found.

Beautiful Things

I’m delighted to report that our plum tree has a gentle dusting of white blossoms on her happy branches, our birds are busying themselves looking for nest-worthy twigs and our bunnies are shedding their thick winter coats… Spring is in the air!

In honor of Spring, Kitty wanted me to share some Spring Babies we found for our ‘Beautiful Things’ post today… starting with our very own photo of Baby BunBuns. We took this photo last year when he was only 6 weeks old… wasn’t he a darling! He still is, of course but there is something just SO adorable about a baby bunny.
