Sacred leaf and petal..

Meditative Beauty
Color Harmonies sing through all of Nature's

What things stimulate you in Nature?

What colors, sights, shapes, sounds..scents

What plants, flowers, trees

Do you take time notice the beauty in the tiniest of things?
Are you awake to the miracles in nature's sacred geometries?

Take a moment in each day

Beautiful pictures, as always. I am using orangish hues along with purples in a new oil of pansies. Your colors are very similar. So pretty.

I'm just making my way through blogland to say thank you so much for all the love & support and thought this would be the perfect blog to leave my comment for you since Finding Harmony is such a treasure in this world. Thank you SO much Victoria for the blessful wishes, I've no doubt they helped tremendously!

Terri said...

*sigh* all that peachy goodness! Soft, velvety, deep and delicious! Healing foods are a blessing! Your visual feast fills my soul with color and warmth : )

Kim said...

Another beautiful post! I love the contrast of the purple and orange colors together, they make each other come alive. Great composition!

I also like the symbolism you shared too. Let's see, in nature, I love lush green, the sounds of birds and the rustle of leaves. The scent of of dark musky earth and fragrant antique roses that ramble and climb with abandon. Oh! And ancient oaks! Those are my favorites. :)

Your mint looks way better than mine does, this Texas heat is zapping my poor plant.

Have a wonderful weekend, sweet kindred. Hugs xxxx

Dearest Victoria,
It's as though this posting was written just for me (though I know it wasn't);) I spend so much, perhaps too much, of my time completely absorbed observing nature and in my surroundings. With a fossil-hunter's eye, my gaze is forever turned toward the ground seeking treasures.

I believe one reason I find it so difficult to ever stray too far from our nest is the years I have spent creating a cocoon for ourselves. One that mimics the soulful beauty from nature.

As always, your images are fuel for the soul. Your words ignite powerful thoughts. For it is a true pleasure and blessing to peruse the pages of "Finding Harmony"

By the way, thank you for your visits. Your beautifully written comments truly make my day and help keep my pages alive! ~ Wishing you a beautiful and blissful week ahead ... may it sparkle!

Every time I visit here it feels like home! Love the colors, the contrast of the smooth peach and the wrinkled mint, the light and shadow.....and the words add magic. To me, natural magic is the only kind there is....it is infused in every moment and experience of every day if we awaken to it. Thanks for the wonderful post! Wishing you a world of beauty, joy and natural magic :)

Mina said...

Martina said...

So beautiful these fruits and flowers Kiki! In summer, i do enjoy them so much and am deeply grateful for natures abundance! I drink a lot of fresh min tea at the moment - so good! Would love to have more time for long walks, because connecting to nature is so important for healing and happiness! Have a lovely evening, sweet friend!

What an inspirational post! I love this: Color Harmonies sing through all of Nature's Creative Magicians. It is so true!

I am inspired by forests and an abundance of green, by views and vistas where you can see to the end of the world or the beginning of heaven.

Jessie said...

Nature is beauty.
We are nature :)

Maravillosos todos tus rincones,un Placer encontrarte.
Gracias por tu visita mágica..

Jennifer said...

Lush, velvety, royal all come to my mind in this post. It made my mouth water and my senses come alive. I am very color sensitive and I'm usually not drawn to orange as a color but the combinations you've chosen made me feel so happy! I love sphere and shell shapes - anything round and the symmetry of natures shells - eggs too. The smoothness. Jennifer
