Taking comfort from the little things around us!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

Wildflowers in Coweta County GAI have to admit that I am a “small world” kind of man. I never feel the urge to travel the world far and wide in order to see exotic sights and distant places.

That’s because I have plenty to see and experience right here in my own locale. Over the years I have become accustomed to “seeing” things that others may be overlooking.

Many would dismiss the tiniest wildflowers as weeds, but every plant flowers at some point and a careful eye can discern the rare elegance of the tiny blooms.

I don’t need to travel the world to see beautiful things. I just need to keep a watchful eye right here at home!

I like the sentiment Richard, and I agree, there is so much that we come into contact each and everyday that we just dont take the time to notice

At the macro photography level, there are entire new worlds close in our grasp.

Richard, what a beautiful flower! Some might see a weed, but you are right... just look around and you will find beauty.

Richard, I am kind of with you on the whole travel thing.  Rembrant never left Holland and look at what he was able to see.

Like you, I am not a traveler, I do love to occasionally enjoy other areas but love to explore what our state/area has to offer.  You live in such an incredible area with many views/terrain and natural beauty, no need to venture far.

Richard- I'd say you don't!  They don't have to be rare orchids to be beautiful.
