Marigolds and a butterfly

I returned home from work, tired more mentally than physically and in a vase of marigolds I saw a butterfly hovering over, looking for the perfect bud or simply admiring the bright yellow orange color of the marigolds?

The sight might be simple and insignificant for someone else, but for me, it was like a ray of joy after a day of work.

The swallowtail butterfly considered as one of the most beautiful butterflies in Italy in my garden?

wishing everyone a pleasant day!

Paris

The trip to this wonderful city was an eye opener for me. Another city, added knowledge of a place dreamed of to see and most of all…the realization that life is indeed a wonderful journey!

Reality

It takes a lot of discerning to understand certain things.

It takes a lot of patience so as to keep on hoping.

It takes a lot of humility and wisdom to accept the things that cannot be changed.

It takes a lot of love to let the flames of hope live forever in my heart.

Flora Alpina

Sometimes I just need to stop and simply breath deeply…

Sometimes I need to take pictures of places and of things just to prolong that sense of awe and joy for having the opportunity and privilege to witness the colorful gifts of nature.
