Sometimes it's nice to to stop and stare.
The old lane above the house. There used to be a hedge for the field boundry, but it's now long overgrown. Look Closer....
Roots trap stones, and flowers grow in cracks.
Hiding in the shadows.
Sometimes we just need to pause. Take notice, open our eye, breathe deeply.
Photos snapped this afternoon, after spotting the clump of violets this morning while playing hunt the chicken eggs in 5 minutes snatched from dyeing fibre.
And you know what, today went so much better as a result. The colours came out as planned, I managed to finish work early, so will actually get ahead of myself, and get a couple of extra jobs done today.
