B is for Beauty - PBP

It was not until I started following a Pagan path and a simplified life,  that I truly started to see the beauty in simple, Goddess given gifts..Over the years I have learnt beauty does not come in a bottle and I still work on beauty not just coming in a size 12.. *smiles*
Today, I looked purely around my home and garden to enjoy the things that delight me.
The smell of freshly cut grass, it is one of those very fresh, raw scents, that breaths beautiful summer days and abundance.
 The beauty that is the size of this flower. Sunflowers standing tall, their faces following the sun as it crosses the sky.
The beauty and the joy seeing the humble buzzy bee, working busily in his camouflaged work place. What a precious gift to see.
I love the sound of a wind chime, there is something beautifully ethereal hearing this one picked to honour the dragon flies, as it tinkles above our garden for the fae.
Nothing soothes like the sounds of water tricking over rocks and back onto it self.. there is beauty in this serene sound.
There is such wonder in the simplicity of a fragrant bud, this one scents the garden and adds such a beautiful contrast of colours.
This banner, a wee dedication to the Goddess... and asking her if she may bless the beauty in my yard.
The peace and tranquility of our home.. there is beauty in the stillness and the silence.
The goodness of nourishing food, made with love and beautiful organic goodness.. Such a blessing to share this wonder of natures bounty.
There is beauty to me, in the flickering of a flame,  the rising smoke and scent of incense.. both burnt to honour the Gods and Goddesses - to celebrate all they bring to our lives. Blessed Be

loved your photos - and wow what was that I saw in your first one - could it be the sun shining? That made me think you are somewhere warm not cold and miserable like the UK! lol! Nice to see the sun shining even if it is through your pictures - I agree about the size 12 too
