Serenity Circle - September 2018


Welcome to September's Serenity Circle - a collaborative project where on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, a group of photographers come together online and share an image / images of serenity moments captured during the course of the month.

I found this little wild flower mesmerising swaying in the breeze.  I happened across it in a part of the garden I rarely venture into.  It's home to rabbits, deer and I've even spotted a fox there on occasion!  It's also an area that is calm and peaceful with a small stream between it and a field on the other side.  This little flower was all on it's own amongst the long grass and seemed to stand out conspicuously in its surroundings whilst also looking quietly serene.... the perfect subject for this month serenity project.

We are a smaller group this month but I am reminded of something the Dalai Lama once said and have to chuckle:

"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in the room." 
Dalai Lama

Next up is the very talented Nacy Armstrong.  Please click here to follow the circle around and see what Nancy- followed by Eileen - have to share this month.  Enjoy!

I love your Dalai Lama quote! So funny and true! I'm glad you ventured into this part of the garden. Beautiful image. I would love to see a fox!

Thank you Eileen. A fox ran across my path one time when I was walking the dog. I don't know who got the biggest scare!!! Finlay didn't even notice it! He was too busy sniffing the rabbits which is probably why the fox was so close that day. Foxes are really beautiful to look at and I'd love to be able to capture one in an image. We had a fox that visited the garden in our previous house as well. He casually strolled through the garden to cross over into the field. Hubby opened the back door to get a better look and the fox looked back and then continued quite the thing on its way unperturbed.

It's not so fine when the dog decides he wants to rub himself in it's peeps! Gaaaa. Yes, he has done that a few times and we've had to take the hose to him outside and give him a deep shampoo job. No wonder the saying "dirty dog". I'm sure a fox was behind it somewhere!

Such a wonderful image Wendy, beautifully captured and edited! I had to laugh at the Dalai Lama quote :-) Just reading the comments and it reminded me of living at home with my parents and our collie dogs. We used to see foxes sometimes in the fields (I've never seen any here, I wonder where they are?!). The dogs used to absolutely love rolling in their business!
