265/2011 it’s the little things

265/2011 it’s the little things, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

A pot plant, which we thought was just a green plant, has surprised us with these two blooms. We’ve had it for about a year, and enjoyed the greenery of its waxy, hardy leaves, never expecting to see any flowers on it.

I am reminded, once again, of the meaning and importance of the little things in life.

187/2011 beautiful surprise



187/2011 beautiful surprise, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

A patch of green leaves started growing in one corner of our garden. We thought they were weeds, and mowed them away last summer. This year, however, in the rush of leaving for holiday we left them – only to find these interesting blooms on return. They certainly don’t look like weeds!

Nature has such power to fill our lives with beauty and pleasure! And, contrary to what I wrote yesterday, sometimes things get better when just left!

#10 light up your face with gladness



010/365 light up your face with gladness, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Today was a dreary day. Our town had been swallowed by a cloud that made everything greyish white, almost colourless. What’s more, I had over 60 essays to mark waiting for me, which didn’t actually help to lift my spirits.

Then, unexpectedly, emptying our recycling bags at the local bin, I noticed something unusual hanging from a tree. What on earth could it be? Somebody had carefully hung this red Christmas ball on a branch by the main road!

It instantly brought a smile on my face, and luckily, thanks to this challenge, I again had my camera with me. Serendipity! The old Nat King Cole song started playing in my mind.

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
