Next to Nature Art

Nature I loved; and next to Nature Art*

Pretty as a picture, the golden leaves strewn along the boardwalk  in the Windsor Nature Park.

 Composed by Nature

Windsor Nature Park is not only a Nature park, in many ways it is an art gallery of  Nature. Below a collage of leaf prints on the boardwalk.

And a close up of the fragile leaf print

Strolling along the narrow path one encounters numerous little art compositions from fallen coconuts to blooming mushrooms to logs of life depending on how one's eyes see and interpret the raw creations of Mother Earth.

Mushrooms bloom admidst the decay

Here's one celebrating fallen coconuts

A kaleidoscopic view  of nature's raw art

The path through the woods is a narrow squeeze and walking along it can be a stressful experience especially when it gets crowded. On the other hand at quiet moments, it allows an intimate brush with nature while you make  your way  on a safe cemented track. Although the encroaching jungle is a hairs breath away I found the Windsor Woods  neither imposing nor sinister. Instead it presents a tranquil, benign   face  for  communion.

Just a closer walk with Nature

And here's a picture of Sophie my grandchild with her dad at the Windsor Nature Park, on a walk organised by her Childcare Centre My first Skool

Sophie's artwork inspired by her romp through the Forest

 * Verse by Walter Savage Landor

I strove with none, for none was worth my strife;
Nature I loved; and next to Nature Art
