Words to Inspire by Henry David Thoreau


Nature will bear the closest inspection.  She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.  ~Henry David Thoreau

This is our monthly quote for May. Please take the time to reflect on this quote and at your convenience and timeframe post your own interpretation.  This could be a photo, or it could be a gardening experience you would like to share, I think just interpreting this to your place and time is what we want to read about.

I’ll be posting a new quote at the start of each month and hope that the words chosen inspire you to create your own interpretation with your garden views. 

Just so you get an advance – here’s the quote for June

“Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old”.

Franz Kafka

There’s only a few instructions if you would kindly follow to participate:

1)  Please Include the quote or poem at the start of your post or on the title so we (your readers) can find it easily.
2) You can use any photos old or new, or written thoughts may work with this month’s theme.

3) Please kindly link back to this meme for others to enjoy different interpretations of the theme.

4) Be creative as you can!

That’s it, are you ready for the challenge?  Well those are the words up at the top of this post, please, come share your interpretation in the comment section below.

Not feeling creative enough - this early in the a.m. - to share an interpretation. However! Many years ago we visited the Walden Pond State Reservation, complete with a replica of his tiny cabin. It's a pretty cool place to visit. Your June quote is a favorite of mine. I'll have to give some thought to this as I'd love to join in this meme. :)
