I recently took this picture while taking a walk with my sister in my building garden. Nature and our beautiful surroundings always manage to open our hearts to beauty and love that we overlook otherwise.

This picture for me is about love, peace, joy, sunshine and everything simple yet powerful that exists around us. We need to arise and look beyond to appreciate the beauty of this earth and celebrate each moment of its uniqueness.

A simple imagery like this, helps us to sooth and heal. It helps us to appreciate more and complain less. It teaches us to love and be loved.

. . . I so agree that even a moment to observe and 'experience' the astounding beauty of nature can give us a brief respite and an infusion of peace and joy.
