Something New

One of my go-to blogs for inspiration and comfort is Laura's blog Shine the Divine: Creativity is a Spiritual Practice.

It is filled with wisdom, humor, humanity, poetry and gorgeous photos. Laura has a meme called "I Heart Macro" and I decided to take part in it on a regular basis.
It makes you look at things up close - really look at them. We have this beautiful staghorn fern that Daniel mounted on a piece of driftwood he found by the river. It is right next to our back door and whenever I go outside, I am stopped for a few seconds by the amazing patterns on this plant.
Different patterns on the leaves and on those mysterious disks it grows. Aren't they beautiful?
I'm linking this to I Heart Macro on Laura's blog. Head on over for some wonderful inspiration on this Sunday morning!



  1. Liebe Silke,

    von meinem Besuch bei dir,
    bleiben liebe Grüße hier.


  2. BEautiful offerings Silke! Thank you for your kind words here and on my blog. You are precious! Thanks too for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro :-)

  3. Great eye you have! Wonderfully creative macro shots ~ carol ^_^

  4. I like this idea of slowing down to look more closely at the world around us. I think I will participate! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I don't think I've ever seen a staghorn fern before -- magnificent plant!

  6. Oh I love this..I never would have thought of something so clever yet natural .. Michelle

  7. DeLovely. I really should get out my camera again.


  8. It's like stepping into a new world when you look really closely at the things around. The "älghornsbräken" is beautiful.

  9. Beautiful photos of this interesting fern. Have a great new week! Hugs, Gunilla

  10. lovely photos of the fern. like the patterns on the leaves.

  11. Oh so worth while to stop and look at the familiar ion a regular basis and note all the little wonders it brings.
    I like the patterns on your stag-horn.

  12. Most people forget how intrigued they were by really LOOKING at things in all their small detail when they were children. I am glad that this love for the small things has never really left me.

  13. I have always enjoyed the somewhat mysterious appearance of stag horn ferns! They are one of those distinctive plants that are always a great photo opportunity! Life is in the little details after all!
    Hugs and enjoy your week my sweet friend <3,
    Beth P
