Day 46, year 2 - Winter daisies.
Its easy to look at the broad sweep of a landscape and see the beauty within it. We’re wired for a connection to the land and for finding landscape beautiful on the large scale.
Sometimes though, if you look closely in unexpected places, like nestling in a sunny spot between the roots of a lime tree, you can find a beautiful little treasure. Its had sub-zero temperatures. Its been buried beneath inches of snow. And yet somehow these plucky little daisies are still blooming in January!
If you’re only looking at the large scale you can miss the little surprises. If you look at the large scale and don’t think there is beauty within it - in a town or city, perhaps - then you can miss the little pockets of surprising beauty….like daisies blooming in January on an average suburban street.
Keep your eyes open, look and truly see, and you never know what you might discover.
