Love all this stuff!! This would be my kind of world.
I agree 100% that beauty is in small things.
Beautiful photos especially the thistles ones.
So true and you show great examples too Michelle, with a right perspective.

Those thistles are so real, I want to get out my weed whacker! :-}
Beautiful post...Love, Mona
Often, on my walks with the dog, I notice how pretty those 'little things' are in the wild...you captured them beautifully. xo
we all need to stop and see the small things...they make the big things not seem so big...pretty photos..
I agree with Ruskin.
The beauty of life really is in the small things. Thanks for the reminder, my friend. xo Laura
Your wildflowers are charming.
Beautiful quote, Michelle! I like thistles--they don't look like a weeds to me :)
Beautiful photos, and I was just thinking that about the little things today .
A feast for the eyes.
So true. All the photos are pretty, especially the last one. Have a good week, Michelle.
Evening Michelle, truly beautiful scenery, so pretty, Francine.
lovely shots, looks like a very peaceful place to be-and yes we do need to be conscious of the little things-funny how they can disappear yet be right in front of us.
Yes,...we do indeed need to stop and smell the roses. That's one thing I love about summer...being out and seeing all God's beauty. It's there in winter, too, of course...I'm just usually inside. :))
beautiful, true and i love the quote!
Yes, it's a beautiful time of year.
One of my favorite quotes!
Ah, yes. xx
Hi Michelle, I have been so busy I have not visited my friends or posted in awhile. I love the pictures, I have missed visiting your lovely blog. Hugs, Lynn
Love the quote and I so agree -- beautiful rural images as always Michelle.
You certainly captured the essence of your words with your photographs...It's so easy to get busy and miss out on all the beautiful little gifts that are everywhere for us to enjoy....
How true that is.
Ah! The joys in little things! So very true, beauty is all around us, we must learn to open our eyes and appreciate it!Lovely pictures Michelle, have a nice day :)
Love that quote, such true words. Great photos as always Michelle. Sorry I haven't visited in a while, life has been busy in these parts as well.
Indeed. And I can see you really see it by including a thistle....:)
Your photos are lovely. I share your love of small towns and rural themes.
