Humble Places

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” Camille Pissarro

A lovely quote to add to our Sky Watch Friday party, where bloggers from all over share in the simple fun of appreciating the show nature puts on for us in the sky.
My week got even better with a lovely win from Imaginarium Designs
 
and sharing a link to my first post with Helmar Adhesives.

I have always loved that quote, it is one of the great truisms. A grey sky can at times be even more enchanting than a brilliantly lit one.
