a wise man

He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.

random saturday

Well, after a couple cups of coffee this morning,  I hit the ground running.  We went out to Camp 6 Lake and my husband fished and I kayaked.  When we got home, we had lunch, I showered up and then I went to visit my neighbors for awhile.  When I got back, we went out to Seidel Lake and I kayaked while my husband fished.  We made a couple stops to visit family on the way home, and after supper, I went for a walk and found 5 more Monarch caterpillars.  I now have 7 caterpillars.  One of the caterpillars that I found the other day has already made it’s chrysalis this morning and I’ll take pics tomorrow and post them.  The following pics were taken throughout the day.

I forgot to mention that as I was taking my walk I startled a mama bunny who was nursing her 4 babies.  I didn’t mean to scare them, and the mama ran off as well as one of the babies.

in every walk with nature…

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.

~John Muir~

The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the works of the Creator.

~Louis Pastuer~

(Dogbane)

This afternoon, as I was out taking a walk, I kept thinking of these two quotes.  It never ceases to amaze me how every time I take a walk, or go in the woods, I find so many beautiful things.  I find things to take pictures of, but more importantly, I find peace of mind and tranquility.  I always receive more than I was seeking and I am always amazed at the beauty of God’s creation.

Dogbane.

Cinquefoil

Goldenrod Spider

This is my favorite bug, the Dogbane Beetle.  I love that it is so shiny, metallic looking and multi-colored.  I also like the fact that they do not run or fly away and they just sit there and let me take all the pics I want.

random saturday…one day late

Yesterday was cold and windy and we still had snow on the ground, so I never got out in the woods, but today it was warmer and sunnier and I took a nice long walkabout.  I found that the snow beat up the trilliums a bit, but everything else seemed to have weathered the storm just fine.
