Finding Beauty in Everyone...and Everything

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for stopping by!  The video I have chosen for this post is entitled "Flowers and Nature with Calm Music".  It is a short 3 minute video.  I would suggest that you listen to this at a lower volume to get the best benefits from it.  Enjoy!

I am still practicing taking photos of flowers, a few of which I am sharing with you all today.  There are photos that I have taken within the last week or so on my walks.  I am still more comfortable photographing animals;  however, I really love flowers as well so I hope you will enjoy my flower photos.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.



I make it a point to try and find beauty in every person and everything around me.  It helps me to appreciate and enjoy everyone...and everything that life has to offer.  I fail miserably sometimes, but I always try!

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  8. Flowers always inspire me, from their tiny buds to their gorgeous blooms, each one performs a miracle, daily!

  9. If we don't find good in others it can make our own world very dark indeed. We are now in Florida enjoying the warmer weather and beautiful sights. Bless you my friend.

  11. that's true, i love your perspective of looking for the beauty in others. sometimes it's too easy for me to focus on the negative and to see only the ugliness, but i have to remind myself that it will only bring discontentment and unhappiness that way =)

  14. Gorgeous flower pictures Linda. I love taking macro shots, but my macro setting on my newest camera isn't as good as my last one was.
    Tammie at Spirithelpers occasionally takes the most magnificent macro shots and makes me green with envy.

  18. Dear Linda - I echo your sentiments about finding beauty daily. Your blog always brings it to me as well. The flowers are absolutely beautiful. You have ones I don't grow. Love the red ones - so stunning. Take care.
