{This Moment} See Beautiful All Around Me

I See Beautiful all around me lately!  I have caterpillars waiting to become butterflies right in my back yard.  All of nature is blooming and living around me...coloring my world into a beautiful painting.

Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love living in South Florida.  On my morning walks, nature is sometimes ready with a surprise.  I love meeting new creatures.  These moments, though few and far between, are Beautiful.

Take a walk with a turtle.  And behold the world in pause.
Bruce Feiler

Today, and everyday, I See Beautiful.  
Thank you, as always, to my dear friend Sugar the Golden Retriever for hosting this hop.

  2. you got to see a walking rock ! those guys are everywhere at the moment

  3. Every place has beauty, we need only to look for it!

    We saw a large turtle on one of our walks a few days back. Unfortunately (and of course) it was on a day when I got lazy and didn't carry the camera.

  4. Oz your part of the world looks beautiful indeed and wow you even have a walking rock. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Oz, in your race it appears that the turtle is winning.

  13. I so admire your photos of the flowers. Very apt quotations to match. Beautiful indeed!

  14. Hi Y'all!

    Oh dear, he ain't no little guy, he's a snapper! A youngster too. They get enormous if they don't live near roads and cars. They can also do some serious damage to doggie noses or any other part that gets to close to that beak! But then I guess y'all know that 'cause y'all are standing a respectable distance.

    The flower shots are beautiful. The colors are amazing and soft.

    Y'all come by now,

  22. Loved your pictures, Oz.

    Aroo to you,

  23. I always wonder what Wilhelm, Brychwyn and Huxley would think of all the creatures you encounter, Oz. At first I smile, but then the imaginary barking begins... :)

  24. Lovely! Love seeing the different flowers that are blooming in everyone's corner of the planet. You're so calm with that turtle! Pretty sure Rita would be afraid of it at first, then bark at it like mad!

  25. You have some beautiful flowers Oz! Love your orchids!

  26. this post was sooo beautiful! Loved it! The purple flower photo is my fave, and even the turtle is beautiful!! (Of course OZ you are HANDSOME, not beautiful!) xoxo

  27. Oz that was truly beautiful. Love the quotes and pictures. You do live in a beautiful world.

  28. That turtle looks almost as big as you Oz. :) It sure is beautiful there.
