What does this phrase mean to you? Does it indicate that you should look up, regain situation awareness, pay attention to that which is happening around you?

Looking through a corkscrew willow, perhaps you sense the plant reaching for the sun and crisp air. You may not be able to discern them, but small buds are there, just waiting for a little warmth to coax them forward in their quest to burst to life.

Life is evident with the ripe red rose hips. They call to various species of birds to come hither and indulge in a tasty meal. Their bold color balances the winter blue sky.

So consider being 'heads up', and take the opportunity to absorb all of nature that surrounds you.

  1. I love that corkscrew willow photo! I wish blogger would let you make your photos bigger... have you thought of linking to a Flikr account so we can enjoy larger versions of these great photos?

  2. Hi Tui,
    Thanks for the compliments on the photos. I normally load photos as a 'meduim' sized; I'll try the 'large' size next time and see how they turn out.
    Thanks for stopping by!


I love comments, and visiting blogs of people who leave them! Thanks for visiting!
