Five Greatest Joys in Nature

I was tagged a VERY LONG time ago by my wonderful blogger friend Celeste at Celestial Ramblings. She lives in a high rise in Chicago...how far away from rural SE Oregon is that?!? A long away!!!

But, I love her blog! Her photos, stories, and wildlife knowledge keeps me going back for more~~

So, this meme asks me to name MY Five Greatest Joys in Nature. It took me a long time to figure out my answer. Then it dawned on me how simple the answer really is.

I haven't visited exotic places or seen any of the greatest natural wonders of the world...but, I have everything I want or need right here...which gives me the greatest joy I could ever imagine.



The Joy of Sight

Gazing into the trusting eye of a
best friend is truly amazing.





The Joy of Smell

Every horse's nose smells different...true!!!
Have you ever had the privilege to
sniff noses with a horse?
I am truly blessed...I do it daily...




The Joy of Hearing

Hearing nothing~~



Or hearing chaos...it's all good...
just a day in the life.






The Joy of Taste

There's nothing better tasting than
home grown food.





The Joy of Feeling

Feeling your friend, a warm fire,
and the love of your soul mate.

~~~~~~~~~~


I'm not going to tag anyone in particular, but I'd love to hear what your five Greatest Joys in Nature are.

If you'd like to play, please do!! Just leave me a comment, 'cause I don't want to miss it!

Thanks for your kind words, we are indeed worlds apart! I must say your world is far nearer to my ideal than mine, but we live with what we have and learn to make the best of it!

Great post - I have indeed had the priviledge to rub noses with horses, countless times and it is certainly one of life's greatest pleasures and so soft too. That part and your comment about sharing life with your soulmate were my favorites. We must be two lucky ladies to have our soulmates close by our sides :)
