In the middle

The other day, I took a walk in the woods. In the middle of the walk, in the middle of the forest, as it happened, there was an unexpected, beautiful little spot. It’s a reservoir surrounded by trees, a pathway with benches, and in the water there is a floating island of trees and bushes. [...]

You can find beauty in the smallest of places

Take a snail, a lot of patience, a macro lens, the artistic eye of Vyacheslav Mishchenko and you’ve got these incredible photographs. I was in awe of these photos when I first saw the “Magical World Of Snails” on Demilked (and still am!), so I had to share the magic with all of you. It’s [...]

Gorgeous blooms: a flower timelapse

Flowers are absolutely amazing. They are one of the most beautiful things in the world and one of the best gifts from the Earth to us. I am in awe every time I watch this video, I can almost smell the flowers as they open up. I’m so glad I caught Photojojo’s tweet about it [...]

This is where I live (part 3: the view in the distance)

The view here may be one of my favorite things about where I live and takes my breath away almost every single day. When the sky is crisp and clear, I get the privilege of seeing the gorgeous Alps. Living in Switzerland definitely has its perks and this is one of my very favorite. Among [...]

This is where I live (part 2: field walks in the outskirts)

I hope that once you look through these photos, you’ll feel like I’ve taken you on a walk around my little village. I’ve been told that there are about 10 farmers that live here and tend to the many fields you see in these photos as well as animals that I plan on showing you [...]

What we all have in common

This is a taste of the walk I took today on this beautiful day. Rapeseed fields like this cover Switzerland in the springtime and are a beautiful site. I had no idea there were such beautiful fields until I moved here and now I live in a town that’s covered from all sides with such [...]

Orchid in bloom + fasting

This beauty has been blooming since late February and is now absolutely stunning. At first I was worried it wouldn’t have another life in it, but as you can see, it’s full of life! On some days it would be snowing outside and indoors I had this loveliness to gaze upon. Right now there are [...]

Those who matter don’t mind

The infamous Dr. Seuss quote! I’m sure you knew it would show up here sooner or later. I’ve never owned a single Dr. Seuss book and it wasn’t until middle school that I fell in love with his messages and stories. It’s so hard not to care about what others think of us, but if [...]

How it’s going…

Do you ever get so wrapped up in one project that you neglect the other just as important or even more important ones? I absolutely love Four Leaf Clover and I’m so happy that I decided to start a blog after many years of consideration. The only problem is that I’m spending so much time [...]

The most beautiful flower of them all

When I wrote about organic cotton a while back, a few people told me they’d never heard or thought about clothing being organic so I imagine this will be even more surprising to some. Flowers, just like food, are mostly grown with pesticides and toxic chemicals. This is not only harmful to the flowers themselves, [...]
