I learnt a new word this week – biophilia.
biophilia noun(according to a theory of the biologist E O Wilson) an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.
So I am pleased to report that I have acute biophilia… connection with nature… which is much more pleasant than it sounds.
I went out for a photo walk this afternoon. The sky was just grey and cold. No interesting clouds. Even the trees looked a bit drab and sorry for themselves. I had to work hard to connect with nature, to see the beauty in in all, but I managed it. You have to look so much more closely in the winter. I hope you enjoy my finds below. Each one sparked a little joy in my heart.
So many different and gorgeous greens.
Pretty in pink.
This wins the tidiest tree in Windsor award.
This is just silly!
A heart gate for you ❤️❤️❤️.
Sometimes dead or dying things are beautiful and interesting too..
A few tiny flowers if you seek them out…
Some purple around..
And some man-made vibrancy..
Roast gammon with cheese sauce, roast potatoes and vegetables… probably cauliflower…for dinner tonight. Yum yum. For pudding is Wall’s Viennetta neopolitan flavour. We’ve not had that before. Have a good week everybody. May the vaccine come speedily to you and please may it work! Xx
