small change

I leave on my bicycle and often think: same roads, same fences, same old barns, same bike, same me … nothing changes.

And then I open my eyes and realize that nature, the natural world, is changing all around me.  Beautifully.  From minute, to day, to week, to season.

The same road is different each day in small and subtle ways.  It is all the change I need.

    I’m running out of adjectives to describe your pictures. Love the bee macro.

      I am figuring all of the pollen in this post is not helping your sinuses … and I apologize. But thank you! 🙂 Hope you feel better soon.

    Wonderful – from the pictures to the message in this post – so true – who needs a change of scenery? All we need is a change in outlook and we can see it all unfold. Gorgeous!

      Yep – eyeballs and throat feel like sandpaper nearly every day lately. I will miss the color, but will be glad when the pollen is past! Happy spring, C.

    I hate to be a sucker for a phrase, but a church I ride by has a sign pronouncing a weekly message and this week’s is, “Keep the Change” – which your post reminded me of. Viva la change! Excellent post and photos. V.

    Observation is the key to gifts from Mother Nature. She always delivers if we are willing to take notice. Great post! Happy spring.

    Have to ask which camera you use for your shots? All are very nice! Agree w/ someone above about running out of ways to compliment your talent!

      Thank you :). These were taken with my Canon 7D; the black and whites in the other post were taken with a small Leica D-Lux4. Hope this helps.
