and a Subtle Mystery

"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs,
but not every man's greed."
Mahatma Gandhi


and keep
our planet great always.

Happy World Environment Day 

.....and a subtle mystery of character, 
it's "Enthusiasm that moves the world."
Arthur Balfour

See the world as yourself.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.
Lao Tzu

"Rascals are always sociable,

and the chief sign that a man has any nobility
in his character is the little pleasure 
he takes in others company."
Arthur Schopenhauer

Notice everything.

There are always silver linings.
You just have to let them in.

The boys have been playing games of war

with little green soldiers,
and of course I felt they needed some true greenery.

We all need nature,
and divine greenery
to play along
with their imaginations, set free.

"I often think that men don't understand 
what is noble and what is ignorant,
though they always talk about it."

Leo Tolstoy

Caught while,
Trying to hide in the bushes!

Yep Rusty Photobombed my picture!

Everyday moments are sacred.

Living nature.

Remember to be owlsome!

We are 

Thanks for stopping by
take good care of you
and our earth.

Ahhh. Thank you for the soothing green magic. Happy World Environment Day to us all.
And thank you for giving me a good reason to be anti-social...
