Weekly Photo Challenge: Life is a Treat

“We can’t wait to see what brings you happiness!” says Word Press.

I’ve enjoyed more than 50 years of sensual pleasures: tastes, smells, sounds, sights, and tactile delights of all kinds.  I live in the wealthiest country in the world, so I’ve had my full share of opportunities to be treated to finely-produced, man-made “treats”.  Consequently, they’ve become a bit dull.  I find that what really makes me smile are all the unexpectedly lavish surprises of Nature I can discover right in front of me, for free, every day.  

The best treats in life are free….born in freedom.  Like Maple Drops.

And Puffball Mushroomallows.

And Teasel Pops.

It’s a world of Pure Imagination!  If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.  (go ahead, click the link to see Gene Wilder in that scene from Willy Wonka that set me dreaming of chocolate for months as a kid!) Enjoy your treats this weekend.

  1. Yesterday I had a little girl treat. I went shopping with a friend and we happened to see adult coloring books. I felt all the excitement that I did when I was a kid. Got the books (at CostCo) but they didn’t have crayons. I just about quiver when I see a new box of crayons, so I went to Walmart, got one and colored last night. So fun.
