Nature Walks – Beauty is All Around

We have all heard the phrase “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. I think this is so true. Beauty is all around us, everywhere we go. We just have to open our eyes and maybe our minds to truly see it.

Today, I decided to walk yet another new path, that is also just a hop, skip and a jump away from my house. I have to admit, it was not my favorite walk, but there were still beautiful things to see. As always, I had my camera at the ready, not knowing what we were going to capture or if we going to capture anything at all today. But lo and behold, there was still lots of beautiful things to see. There were lots of things that caught my eye.

There was a colorful piece of art representing our mountains running along the creek.

There were blooming cacti.

Moths resting on the flowers.

And lots of delicate little yellow and white flowers dotting the pathways.

Hope you all have a beautiful day.

  1. I noticed a blooming cactus on my yesterday’s walk. It looked gorgeous.
    And the piece of art you photographed wowed me. It looks so out of place, but I like how vibrant the colors are when contrasted with the rather dull background.

      1. They are also very tasty. I’ve had grilled prickly pear (the actual cactus meat) and prickly pear jelly (the red bloom bases). I had a supervisor that knew how to make jelly out of them. Their flowers are bright yellow and when they die off, the bases turn red.

        I also had agave in my yard but, those things…man…they are the weeds of the cactus world. They put shoots out all over the place, just like an aloe plant.
