Everything is made out of magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden – in all the places.
I read The Secret Garden as a young woman, and over the years it has occupied an enchanted and magical place in my heart. Now Autumn has arrived here, where I live in Sweden, and that means There’s a magical tie to the land of our home, which the heart cannot break, though the footsteps may roam. – Eliza Cook.
But Magical can mean so many different things to everyone of us – At Lens-Artists, we have already had Magical Light as a theme, (last year) but this time it is all up to you! What is Magical to you? People, places, things, nature, adventures, moments… – this week we are looking forward to having some of Your magic!
As usual – click on the images to enlarge.
The magical, supernatural force that is with us every second is time. We can’t even comprehend it. It’s such an illusion, it’s such a strange thing. – Anthony Hopkins
Picking plums today – waiting for the lovely Comma to finish basking on my ladder…
Garden as though you will live forever. – William Kent
An oil painting can, maybe, make the magic last forever…
Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it – Rumi
Poetry is a fresh morning spider-web telling a story of moonlit hours of weaving and waiting during a night. – Carl Sandburg
I am sure there is Magic in everything, only we have not sense enough to get hold of it and make it do things for us
Isn’t it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? – Douglas Adams
– But there are, Fairies dancing in my garden. Contemplate the lovely writer Roald Dahl’s words: Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
