Springs Abundance

Spring is bursting nature at the seams
Abundance spills endlessly
Petals discarded with each breath.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

    Thank you for sharing! I just came back from my vacation and try to catch up… Glad I did not miss this one ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hope you had a great holiday….I thought I hadn’t seen much of you in the blogsphere. I’ll look forward to reading about your holiday adventures ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked this spring fuelled post.

  2. that looks like a marvellous spot for a picnic.

    we are longing for spring – it’s still cold outside here – even our cat prefers to stay resting in the armchair near the oven …

    • Gosh, it must feel as though winter is never going to end if spring still hasn’t arrived for you. I felt that this year it was a very long wait……it began to feel that it might not ever come….but it’s all forgotten as soon as the abundance of life starts pouring through.

    Oh, I love the bright faces of the dandelions… shame they always get such a bad name!

    Pleasant picture and words. But! Those little b….s like my lawn, and I’m forever uprooting them only to have two pop up for every one taken out!

  6. lovely – yes. And I have always loved dandelions. I have them in my garden too.

    Lovely photo, beautiful words. Thank you!

  8. I’m glad you posted an image of Dandelions … Joanna wondered, just yesterday while looking over our unmowed from lawn, why they are a plant so disparaged. Your photo shows just how beautiful they can be. Little bits of sunshine … right there for us to enjoy, en mass. D

    • They are indeed like little golden suns, in a sea of lime green.
      My Granny used to say that a weed was just a flower growing in the wrong place.
      This part of the park has been left uncut so that wild flowers can flourish and feed the bees and butterflies….and our eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Definitely Spring! Finally! Love that precious last line: petals discarded with each breath.

    • Thanks ……I was standing under a cherry blossom tree before writing this, and the white petals were pouring off the branches and swirling like snow around me ๐Ÿ™‚ sudden abundance after winters austerity ๐Ÿ™‚

    how quickly Spring expires – great angle on this shot – as seen by bees ๐Ÿ™‚

    beautiful flower meadow and typical british touch, a slimline hedge…
    sounds like “a hedge between keeps friendship green….”

    whatยดs behind the hedge, assume not a cemetery…
    like english gardening, roses and more…
    thanks walking a while with you…dear friend Seo…
    have a wonderful week…

    • Behind the manicured hedge is an old mill, which has been converted into a lovely home. It sits in the middle of the dandelion park….hence the hedge for privacy!
      So glad you enjoyed the walk….

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
