I look at nature a lot but the sensation of being in it and of it is different.
Instead of managing it (gardening) photographing it, painting it, thinking about it, I found myself just being.....gentle sunlight and warmth made me relax, the cosmos are thick and high and I was right in amongst them. I was deadheading them and having to do it quite slowly and carefully to avoid the many bees which in the brown centres of the ones which were going over were not easy to see. There are more bees in the garden than I have ever seen. I paused to listen to them and had the happy and beautiful feeling of being a part of it all.
Thank you to Lotta whose post inspired this one.
