As you know one of the benefits of living a life with less is the reduced impact on supply and demand which in turn has a positive effect on the environment. In light of that I received the following email yesterday which I decided to share with you on the chance that you may wish to participate. It is worth taking a look at the link just to appreciate the beauty of nature captured by the amazing talent of the photographers featured. Here is the email…

Oh those are nice.
I have a funny story about clutter that hidden right underneath your nose. Last week we were supposed to check around for any Christmas items that might have missed being packed, and I reported that I couldn’t find any. Oh duh! Except for that huge poinsettia that had been sitting on my coffee table looking sadder and sadder. How could I not have noticed it until two days ago???
that is funny! Look on the bright side it sounds like it belongs in the trash so you won’t have to drag out the storage boxes to put it in. I did something similar one year but it was a figurine that seemed to blend in with other stuff because it didn’t look that Christmasy. It took some time before I realised it didn’t belong.
You’re right, the poinsettia went into the yard waste bin, off to become city-made mulch, but those Halloween cat ears and tail that STILL haven’t made it back into the bin with the other Halloween stuff…well I’m red faced.

Beautiful nature photos. I voted!
Hi Betty Jo,
they were lovely weren’t they. You should go to the flickr site of the photographer with the photo of the bird in the autumn leaves. His shots of birds in flight are amazing.
Beautiful photos. My favourite is the snow-swept landscape with the single tree.
I love snowscapes too but my favourite photo of the group was the bird in the autumn leaves.
My favorite was the green landscape scene. If the photos don’t change positions when you look on the page, then it was the very last one.
the beauty in every photograph is a gift from nature while the skill of the photographer is only exceeded by his patience to wait for the perfect moment.
You are so right.
