Little Pleasures Still Ringing My Bell

DECORATING HOMES for the holidays has a way of spilling out into the streets and, in this case, parks and beaches. On a recent walk in Crescent Beach I spotted ornaments swaying prettily in the breeze.

Someone thought to string these few simple treasures on tree branches.

I appreciated the helping hands of a passerby who offered to lift the wings on this ornamental butterfly so I could take its picture. Her friendly gesture put us both in good spirits.

I am guessing that the wildlife in the area will intuitively know these dangling delights are not edible. The earth is my home and the wonders I find there are still ringing my bell ... and I hope yours too on this eve of 2013.

Happy New Year everyone!

  12. There is a delicate enchantment to your photos and thoughts, Maria, that brings a feeling of hope for a gentler world. Your interaction with the helpful lady was just one of many that find you because of the wonder you see in your world. As I think of it, that sense of tender admiration pretty much defines both of your blogs. Wishing you and those you love fulfillment throughout 2013 and beyond.

  14. I bet the person who decorated the area will return to pick up the ornaments. That's what usually happens here.

    All the best in 2013!
