GO OUT I BEG OF YOU...


 Just in case the words embedded in my photograph are a difficult read (there are days for me too), I am repeating the words here.

"Go out, go out I beg of you, and taste the beauty of the wild.  Behold the miracle of the earth with all the wonder of a child."

Canadian Poet 1891-1978




We don’t necessarily have to go far to enjoy the wild.  It could be in our own garden.  What miracle of the earth did you see recently? Spring has many of them.



Photo from trip to Alaska in May 2018

    1. It certainly is, though not being too far away I am sure you are feeling the chilly weather is back again. Those plants are so confused ;)

  3. Alaska. That is one state I've not seen. What could be more wild frontier?

    And being out and about with nature is definitely my forté.

  5. The Cale car says Spring has arrived. Looking outside, though, it appears Winter does not want to leave. We have 2 inches of snow on the ground here in Warren PA.

    1. Oh my goodness Linda, and would you believe it snowed here for about 5 minutes a couple of days ago??? I hope your snow goes away quickly :)

  6. there is always a miracle to be found, even on our walks down the street or in our own yard. the bunny that startled us as we walked, the sun coming up and painting the trees, the only thing messing with natures miracles are the humans on the roads we walk. one thing is our powder puff bush, bob chopped it from 20 plus feet tall to 4 feet tall and now in just 10 days it has grown about a foot. amazing to watch

  7. A good quote.

    We are presently experiencing what's probably the last of the winter cold.

    1. Thanks William :) I hope so, we are experiencing chilly weather too but perhaps not as bad as further up north.

  8. Just awakening each day is a miracle, Denise, and I don't mean that in an unkind way. We have not been taking many outdoor walks because it's been cold and windy and not spring-like at all. We also had light snow on Monday and the temp right now is only 28 degrees, brrrr.

  9. The older I get, the more I appreciate the beauty that is out in the world. Guess I have more time to enjoy now since life has slowed down for me.

  10. I've been watching birds 'courting.' Love to do that, in the spring.

    And actually, can do it, from my window. Best, as thus, I don't bother them.

    1. Hi BB, birds are always fascinating to observe, though I often think what do they think of us when they see us staring at them through the window? Most of them when they see us take off, but it's not long before their return. Makes me wish I could speak bird :)

  13. Lately, pretty much all I see is snow and mud. I'm sure I'll be seeing plenty of springtime miracles real soon though

  14. I did go out Sunday afternoon enjoying our blue skies that seem to reach to the heavens. It was about 83 degrees with low numidity -that is heaven to me here in Florida. Loved the poem!

  20. Wonderful quote, Denise! The wonder of nature is all around us. I'm really enjoying seeing all the lovely redbuds in bloom along with everything else. Sure do hope the recent freeze doesn't spoil more blooms to come.

    1. Thank you Martha Ellen :) I haven't noticed any redbuds yet, probably the next time I go out. I hope so too about the freeze.
