Don’t hurry, Don’t worry

“You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.  “

Walter Hagen

For my Day-2 for the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge, I wanted to post about my morning walk this morning. Friday is the day-off here in Kuwait so I always look forward to this day. This is the day where we as a family can enjoy the “Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry “mode because we are free from the early morning rush when preparing to go to work.

These beauties have greeted us with delight. They’re gazing up into the bright morning sun. At this time, we have these spring flowers in Kuwait just along the beach.I called them “wild silent spells “.

I spotted an orange butterfly hovering around these wild flowers and I just smiled.This is quite a rare sight here..I normally see more  flies, but not a butterfly!

If you just looked around, there’s so much beauty in simple things around us. If we just took a moment to not hurry, then we will not miss these special moments in nature.The basic pollination and beautiful metamorphosis. I decided not to hurry because I know I must take this moment while its still in front of me. After a month, the weather in Kuwait will soar high that I will no longer see these wild silent spells.

When was the last time you are actually in a “Don’t hurry, Don’t worry “mode?

When was the last time you took time just to adore & smell the flowers around you?

To end this post, I would like to pass on this 7-Day Nature photo challenge to Cheryl,  the amazing woman behind the Blog “Twobrownfeet” which is a very inspiring blog about travel, chasing your dreams & love to seize the day. I hope she accept this challenge & enjoy posting about nature.

*The rule of this challenge is quite simple: Post a nature photo and nominate someone else per day for 7 days.

Again, thank you Stella  of Giggles&Tales for inspiring me to do this challenge.X

  1. Great photos!
    My first question was “how on earth do such flowers manager to grow in Kuwait heat, and on a beach?” Then I saw the watering pipes.
    I’m assuming they are also sitting in their own little oasis is topsoil so that they have a good spot to put down roots. Whatever they are doing it obviously works well because the flowers are lovely!
    A special bonus is that not only did you see a butterfly but you also got a photograph too, quick work, well done 🙂
    Why do you think there are not many butterflies around? are there too few gardens and flowers?
    Brilliant to see that they are taking such effort to plant flowers at the beach, that’s impressive.

  2. Haha! You have a clever eye…you see everything & notice every minute details!
    Well,spring in Kuwait is really a short fleeting beautiful time,The moment i see the flowers are budding,my moods are changed.

    Its so rare so I always took the chance whenever I had to be engrossed in nature..Kw maybe not have luscious landscapes and beautiful gardens but it manage to cultivate what’s in here…the rows of palm trees & date trees are always a fascinating retreat from the heat..they even have a temp.controlled nurseries for the indoor plants!

    To see a butterfly here is as rare as seeing the full moon but I kind of like it instead of crazy swarm of wasps & bees in Germany that becomes rather annoying.

    Thanks for taking time to visit,have a nice day !
