The Changing Seasons: February 2018

I am glad for this opportunity to revisit February as the month has whizzed by!  My 30-Day Challenge was to encounter Beauty, whether it is as an Imaginative Creator or Awed Enthusiast.  I feel like I didn’t mindfully do this as there was so much going on.  So I am going to try again in March, to purposefully engage in Beauty, whether it is composing a photograph, or dreaming up new Blondie flavours, or jiggling to music, or being gobsmacked by a sculpture: Encounter with Beauty, Take 2.

On to the Highlights of February: we harvested our first tomato (Above photo)  from our Balcony Garden: we were all thrilled to enjoy the fruits of Loving Husband & Older Daughter’s labours.  There were a total of 5.  We are awaiting 2 more which have since emerged.

If you are inspired to join in, here are the guidelines for The Changing Seasons.

  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so others can find them.

Share Your World: Inspired by Nature

Many of us find inspiration in Nature.

Singapore may be a city, but there are many wonderfully green places for pedestrians to wander about, mull over life’s mysteries and be inspired.  I love exploring the Park Connector network when I have the chance; these dedicated walkways/cycle paths run between parks to allow one to park hop,  providing safe passage for pedestrians & cyclists.  The Alexander Canal Linear Park is a beautiful and particularly lovely example, running alongside several housing developments.
