This is...my favourite things from nature
* fragrant flowers especially jasmine and gardenias
* birds singing- do you take the time to listen?
* spider webs, so delicate and very beautiful!
* wind through your hair and rain on your face
* sunrise and sunset
* twinkling stars on a black velvet sky
* listening to crashing waves against beach rocks
so many many more - we need to stop and observe, listen, smell and see the beauty thats all around us!!
