Nature’s Bounty

Do you ever look around you and appreciate what you see?  Like yesterday I saw a beautiful white Egret at the edge of the lake.  It was standing looking out across the lake or maybe at some of the ducks on the lake.  I appreciate being able to see an Egret so close and I think how lucky I am.  I also saw a very small hummingbird perched in a bush.  It was no larger than my index finger and yet it can hover over a flower and drink it’s nectar for what seems like minutes.  It is an amazing site to see.

As I appreciate these gifts from nature I wonder if other people stop to appreciate them too.  Do you take the time to see what is around you? Or are you too busy proceeding to your destination or talking/texting on your cell phone to notice?

There may be plants and animals that are depending on us to keep the earth healthy.  If we do our part then nature – the earth, air, water, animals,  plants and trees will be able to do their part by providing us with some beautiful scenery and beautiful moments.  You just have to slow down and look.
