It speaks of bliss, a moment of joyful contemplation. A moment where one appreciates the beauty of nature without asking what practical benefits nature has for us. Instead, nature is loved as it is.

Nature draws us in, spell-binding in restorative way. It is to this aspect of nature that I believe C.S.Lewis alludes to when he says,

“You and I have need of the strongest spell that can be found to wake us from the evil enchantment of worldliness.” –The Weight of Glory

Do you feel the same about nature? What are some of your favourite blogs/websites which celebrate the beauty of nature? Share them here!
