Like many people, I have a complicated relationship with Nature.
I love being outdoors, surrounded by lush foliage, flowers and trees
- yet I choose to live in a city, because I like all the options and opportunities it has to offer.
Walking along a rugged coastline and hearing waves pound against the rocks under my feet, calms me down (not an easy job, I can assure you)
- yet I spend a large part of my weekends and holidays indoors, writing, blogging, reading or catching up with friends.
I know I am part of nature. I live and breathe because of the world around me
- yet so often I focus on boundaries, walls and differences.
In the middle of my have-tos and want-tos, I wanted to take a moment to stand still and remind myself of the beauty that can be found in nature.
So I've spent most of the afternoon out in the garden and made a moss carpet for the bathroom (more about that later). Then I've come in to go through my travel photographs and pick a few of my favourite nature shots to share.

Now I'm off to the garden again to enjoy the rest of today's sunshine. Have a great weekend!
