noticing

As I worked on the computer today, I glanced over to notice one of the succulents was sporting new blooms.

Who knew I had Four Season’s fluffy white towels growing in my sunroom? I certainly didn’t until I took a closer look.

Since I’m on a roll with noticing, thought I’d share some things I spotted on my recent walk in the country. The large picture is still drought-y, crunchy and brown, but if one looks close enough…..well, you’ll see. Presenting a country walk in macro:

Oops….this isn’t a macro shot! It is proof of the brown, parched landscape. Mesquites don’t even think about budding until mid to late May!

Satisfied?

Who knows what surprisingly beautiful thing you’ll notice in your environment?

Eyes-open love to all.
