Taking sometime to read nature in urban environments teach us a lesson of patience and surprise.
We could find some treasures in parks and gardens, and with some luck good findings
are just about crossing our paths.
In a park near home I found masses of bushes of Juniperus communis that were full of cones some green and some already ripening.
Now I have a good stock of cones to use in the kitchen and for drinks in party.
In a park nearby, there are some rosebushes still blooming the last of the roses for the season
and I cut few of them for a small bouquet for my desk.
And a made an original arrangement out of some branches from a fallen tree after a storm, that I found on the sidewalk on my way to work.
