Pictured above is the Milpas South Exit in Santa Barbara, off the 101 Freeway heading South. We both enjoy seeing the expanse of the exit filled with this bright hot pink bougainvillea. Being surrounded by nature in all its forms is part of what makes our life beautiful.
"Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."
~ Albert Einstein
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter."
~ Rachel Carson
"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
~ John Muir
Happy Sunday, Wising you Wonderful August!
