Just a Day...

It was just a day,
as most are...
 
nothing special happened,
as happens most days...
 
but...
the moments of simple beauty
are easily found....
 
appreciated
and admired...
 
 
I love the view
 of the cherry tree outside the window...
 
through the wavy old glass
it is distorted and dreamy...
 



 
I have been doing a little rearranging
Spring Cleaning...
 
I was moving my hat boxes,
when I remembered the contents...
 
yes hats!
 

 
vintage hats
covered in millinery flowers...
 
oh....
 to have lived in a day
to have worn such hats!
 
 
the wet garden
is busting with flowers..
 
I love the way the tips of the
Woody Hyacinths
fade from blue to white
 as they sit too long in the vase...
 


 
cheery cherry blossoms
only made more cheery in white china...
 


simple and perfect...
 
so much beauty slips by our eyes
when we don't take the time to see it...
 


my favorite mug...
 


 
the sun peeks from the rain clouds
pouring through my windows...
 
after such a gloomy Seattle Winter,
I bask in it,
revitalized...


nature,
bright and elegant...
 

 
every time I photograph
Cherry Blossoms..
I am freshly in awe of their delicate beauty...
 
 
Have  a Great Day,
look for the beauty,
it surround you!

So many people do not take the time to see the 'little beauties' in life. I always try to point them out to my grandgirls every chance I get. Life is too short and moves too fast for these kids--their childhood wonder is gone years too early.
These are all beautiful photos, Bella. xo Diana

What beautiful flowers and such a lovely view into your home and of your cherry tree. And the hats! It's life they so fun to imagine had pr the people who wore them -- or living the life when they were worn. Such lovely photos and I can almost smell your hyacinths.
