Nature’s Smile

During a walk through the woods last spring, I saw a bunch of gumballs and pine cones and thought it might be fun to play with them. So this happened:

Don’t worry – be happy! πŸ˜‚ And then I thought maybe it might like a branch for a hat:

A little while later, I found two dogwood blooms that I accidentally knocked off the tree. (Oops!)

And I decided to completely redesign the whole thing…

My dad said that this was the result of having too much time on my hands, but it was really nice to unwind on my stroll and let my creative side come out. πŸ™‚

  1. Hey Grace, Namaste πŸ™‚

    A delightful post! Whimsical and amusing, the essence of you, both myself and Margaret are left smiling πŸ˜€

    I think your Dad is just in admiration of your creativity Grace πŸ™‚ I imagine his heart was warmed greatly watching as happiness shined playfully in one he Loves.

    Wonderful photos, I like the textures of the woodland floor, the chaotic patternation of colours shapes and form plays merrily on the eye.

    Hoping all is well.

    God Bless. Namaste πŸ™‚

    • Hi! πŸ™‚

      Thank you! 😊 ❀ I’m so glad this made you (and Margaret) smile. πŸ™‚

      Aww. πŸ™‚

      Thanks! πŸ™‚ The dead tree was recently cut down and the stump was huge – a fun setting for taking photos on. Picking out autumn leaves was a lot of fun too.

      All is well here; hope all is well with you too. πŸ™‚

      God bless! ❀

  2. What beautiful pictures! These are so creative, I love them ❀ Especially the face at the end that featured the flowers!
    It's so interesting how nature can create a gorgeous image like that, it really reveals the softer side of life (the rougher side is predators, prey, death, and disease 😦 )
    Thank you for sharing (and I'm glad I inspired you ❀ ) !
