That was a beautiful little speech Recently I have been realizing the same thing, and ever since I have gotten up every morning to photograph chickens and nature (you inspired me!) I have started truly enjoying autumn-winter for the first time in several years.Sometimes, especially as winter sets in, I am discouraged to walk outside to get pictures, only to find the Autumn leaves, the flowers, and other things to be...gone. My first thought is, There’s nothing beautiful left. But really, that’s not the case. That dead flower might have lost its color, but it’s still beautiful in its own way. The shriveled mushrooms that look like nothing at first glance actually seem to glow with mystery and beauty, with small, intricate details. The evergreens still have their vivid green needles. The moss still offers a soft touch to the forest. The birds, while many have left, still sing their sweet songs. As I look closer, I realize that there is beauty in every season, no matter how it may look on the surface. And at last, camera aimed for a fallen flower, I smile.
The chickens have been enjoying beautiful days with little rain, just clouds. Today, I let the flock out to free-range, and they’ve spent their time running around, grabbing fresh bugs and other forage as they go. Mochi was especially adorable as she followed me all over the yard as I took pictures, her fluffy legs toddling after me. After a while, I had to scoop her up and give her some snuggles
