Works of art are often priceless treasures. We will go to great lengths to save them and protect them.
Today I share with you some works of art which are free to us,all we need to do to enjoy them is to slow down and look.
An overnight frost paints a world of beauty.
Frost clings to each little twig.
Just how much would a stem like this cost in a florist shop?
I am sure that it would be more than I would be willing to pay.
How much did this one cost me?
The total cost was a little bit of gas to drive out of town and then the time to stop and take note of the beauty.
Another priceless treasure,just waiting for me to capture it's picture.
I am in awe when I see this kind of beauty,and then realize that no human hand could create something this delicate and pretty.
As the sun peeks over the frost covered trees,I am rewarded with a beautiful star burst. Here a simple row of trees becomes a place a peace and beauty.
As I was standing on the roadside,I could hear the gentle tinkle of the ice falling from the branches.This was sweet music as I drank in the scene.
In summer this tangle of brush would perhaps not draw my attention,but now,covered in frost each branch glows in the morning light.
I find that in a case like this a picture does not adequately show the beauty,but unless you all come to visit me,this is the best I can do.
These pictures were taken on February 3rd.The last few weeks have been so mild that there is no frost around.
Thought for today:
Each season has its own joys to treasure,
to lift one's spirits and bring pleasure.
