Garden Thoughts, Nature, Mindful Nature

Nature Signs

A little bird’s nest in a fig tree at the University of Wollongong

 

I can always count on Nature.

As we enjoyed the lawn refreshments after my youngest son’s university graduation yesterday

we sought the shade of a beautiful old fig tree

Excitement…my baby just graduated…hopes for his abundant future

Intensity…then surrender

When I’m under a tree I always look up to enjoy the beauty of the canopy

Which I did

And there, right above me, was a little empty birds nest

The sun shining through leaves as a spotlight to grab my attention

A beautifully woven nest protected by thick durable fig leaves

against sun, wind & rain

Preserved and firmly anchored

An enduring sanctuary after its first purpose was served

as it should be

Message well and truly received

Thank you Nature 🌸
