“Simply Delightful”

“Simply Delightful”

“When you can take pleasure in the simple beauty life offers, then you are truly blessed.”
– Ed Lehming

Often, even the most mundane things draw my attention. Though I have stood on rugged vistas and surveyed sights that have left me in awe and speechless I’m still fascinated with the very simple beauty of my everyday surroundings.

In this case, a single small red berry hangs from a vine in the sunshine in early spring. A drop of dew clings tenaciously to it, further enhancing the feeling of freshness. The isolation of this single berry, the last one remaining on the vine is in such contrast to the dull gray world around it.

In the background, the world is awakening from its winter slumber, colour slowly returning, yet traces of snow remain to remind us that winter is not such a distant memory.

  1. I share your enthusiasm for the simplest things of beauty.
    Reviewing photos, I often find I was smitten with a single leaf, a coiling grapevine, or tracks in the snow. Most are no good for public display, as they often have such limited content without context.
    I relish these for myself, as they are truly “you had to be there” moments.

    Seek peace,
