Contemplating the uniqueness of leaves that catch my eye, as I sweep the garden paths daily, is my personal form of mindfulness and reflecting on the wonder and variety of colour and pattern is a great start to the day. To value and focus on these seemingly ‘little things’ brings to mind the beauty of nature, in its full bloom of youth, and in decay and decline. This collection of images is a momento – to be opened and viewed often thus recalling the ‘little things’ that really matter.
