It’s Gallery time again and this week’s topic is a simple one, ‘Nature’.
I love being out and about with my family and the easiest days out are those which involve nothing more than a stroll in a forest or a wander along the beach. The children are very good at looking now, at seeing the wonder in patterns, shapes and colours, at getting up close and observing the tiny details.
I think it is one of the best gifts you can give a child to show them how to find delight in the small but miraculous things in life.
That there are surprises waiting for those who take the time to look
How important it is to look up and appreciate the wonder in the landscape
To grow enormous and beautiful things from tiny seeds
To appreciate colour, texture, scent and form
To understand that life is circular that all around us there is death and renewal
To realise how tiny we are in the bigger picture
And how perfect
