Slow down

Wabi-sabi (?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection (Wikipedia)

I love the idea that there is beauty in imperfection and in things that are transient. I have long been a lover of decaying flowers or nature as the textures and lines are often stunning. My garden at the minute looks, on first glance, to be past its best- not much life and just a few struggling flowers. On closer inspection however, there are some wonderful subjects! The poppy seed heads have so many shades of green and brown.

The flowers that are decaying are covered in fine cobwebs and have so much texture.

Don’t be in too much of a hurry to see what is in front of you.We all rush around so much. Take time for yourself and appreciate nature – it really is amazing. x
