The wonders of nature can be appreciated by observing its various elements, such as colour, structure, texture, and versatility. For, “The moment one gives close attention to anything,” said Henry Miller, “even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.”

Ooh, Shiny! Buzz – oh look, it’s a bee! Bees always manage to catch my attention, often sidetracking me from wherever I am going. They are such graceful creatures and their romance with flowers is one of the most elegant things in the world. When they stay still and pose for me cooperatively, I can’t help but admire the wonders and powers of nature. Beautiful!

After visiting the Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies, I took a walk around the Kelpies before the sky got completely dark, stumbling upon a lovely row of trees reflected in the quiet waters.

Catching a well-timed (almost) sunset at Shek O on Hong Kong Island on the first day of 2017!

It is not the first time I am posting a photo of this tree outside my office, and I gotta say it’s my favourite tree on campus. For the past two years, I noticed flowers beginning to bloom in February or March but this year, they were already blooming by late January. It gives me joy seeing this tree as I walk by and enter my office building, especially since the usual Glasgow rainy season has been relatively rain-free thus far. Spring is coming, or has it already arrived? 😉
