A Glimpse

Amazing the difference in the display of snaps on camera screens versus computer screens.

I had felt quite discouraged when I took some pictures of the Terrace Gardens; until I saw them on my computer.

My capture doesn’t do justice to the view but it’s one that brings back lovely memories.

I have gone on walks here many times over the years, and sat down for a few hot drinks in its cute café.

I have watched Parakeets having fun,

I have been part of so much laughter and refreshing at this Gardens.

If I hadn’t known me better, I will say that I would visit this place more often if I lived close by.

It is so beautiful … so exquisite … with its little hills (fab for exercising), gorgeous plants, elegant trees, cute green house, changing flower arrangements, quaint café, scurrying squirrels, chirping birds, and view of the river Thames.

I lived about 5 mins walk away many years ago, when I had more time on my hands (I didn’t realise this then).

I wish I valued it as much then …

I wish I visited it daily to take in its fresh air then …

I wish I explored it weekly to fill me with wonder then …

I wish I sat there regularly to take in its beauty then …

I wish I allowed myself to be regularly enriched by it then …

I wish ….

So sad how we don’t always see the beauty around us … how we don’t always maximise the opportunities that stare us in the face.

I hope I do better now with what I have around me, so that I don’t wish I’d done so in time to come.

Do you take full advantage of the scenery near you?

    • Thanks for your lovely comment. I don’t think most of us do; it’s so easy to take things for granted when they seem to always be there. But hey, we can change our attitude and pay more attention; we sure won’t regret it. 🙂

  1. I live in the Cotswolds and I always appreciate the stunning views here, but I rarely have time to stop and photograph them. These are lovely photos that really show it’s spring – new leaves on the trees, the grass looking green and fresh! #CheckOutThatView

    • Wow … my impression of the Cotsworlds is that it’s one of those places where you’re surrounded by beauty. It’s lovely you appreciate the views around you even if you don’t always have time to photograph them. There’s only so much beauty one can capture, when it’s all around. Thanks for your comment and lovely linky.

    • So lovely; I think noticing the beauty around us, really does add to our lives. Another challenge I have is organising the pictures and making sure they don’t just say on the memory card. I look forward to vising Cornwall sometime. Thanks for dropping by.
