Through my eyes- A May Challenge.
Thanks to Debe Maxwell, CRS, for this month's challenge about appreciating the beauty of May flowers.
I was sitting outside on my porch this week, enjoying a lovely picnic lunch with my beautiful daughter. It was a delightful perfect Spring day. I looked up and around and saw the sheer beauty of the trees, the leaves, and the grass. Did those trees and leaves get so much greener than I remembered? Did what's left of my blooming Azaleas get brighter and more delicate in color and shape?
Maybe not, but to me, they were much more vibrant. The texture, the colors the shapes were spectacular.
But they are the same trees and flowers that bloom yearly. What changed was me! The way I saw this beauty was through my "new" eyes.
Recently I had cataract surgery. I have been in glasses since the age of five. They have always been a part of me. Now just a few months later, my vision without my glasses is clear, sharp, and so bright. I appreciate the clarity, which I didn't know I was missing.
Yep, I see the azaleas through my now-absent rose-colored glasses, and the nature, the grass, foliage, and flowers are spectacular!
Only the high blossoms of the azaleas remain because the deer love the taste and colors of these pretty blooms.
Where my other lost/disappearing azaleas grew over the years, my landscaping choice is now rocks and no flowers but plenty of green.
I hope you take time to share your Spring beauty with Debe Maxwell, CRS, and enter this easy May challenge.
