I woke up this morning to my curtains billowing in the gentle breeze, to a symphony of bird song, and to the earthy scent of fresh warm Spring rain.
It’s in these peaceful moments that I feel the beauty and serenity of Spring wash over me like a tender flower, and it always allows me to feel refreshed, revitalised and ready for a new day, filled with the hopes, wishes, dreams, and opportunities that this season promises.
The season of Spring is such an enchantress to me, and perhaps unsurprising to you all, my very favourite season of them all!
In order to embody these bountiful gifts of Spring from my eyes to yours, I am so blessed and honoured to say that this post is in collaboration with SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars where they have allowed me to magnify my enchanted surroundings with you so that this treasure trove of senses and visual spectacles can be equally wondrous for you too!
Review of SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars
Each morning, Spring continues to flower over the Earth below me, and in turn, gifts me with such a spectacle of sensory treasures that in turn blesses me with endless magic.
It’s thanks to SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars that I now have the gift of magnifying, exaggerating, and optimising each and every single one of these magnificent details that I’m so excited to show you more of below.
Before I was gifted the SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars, I was using several different binoculars that I’d leave here, there, and everywhere to soak up all of the details in my surroundings!
These binoculars, however, are unlike anything I have ever used, and are simply quadruple the power of all my other binoculars put together!
From watching every single minute detail on my beloved birds to viewing the awe-inspiring recent super Pink Full Moon, these powerful binoculars have been my portal to such magic that in turn has opened up my imagination and heart even more deeply to the beauty and wonder within me and outside of me.
Featuring powerful magnification and large objectives, SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars are an ideal optic that are perfect for bird watching, stargazing, wildlife viewing, and other general uses.
The enhanced light-gathering ability offered by the included multi-coated optics and 50mm objectives further help to deliver crisp and bright images. In doing so, it completely elevates the colours and details of even distant subjects from dawn to dusk to night skies without any edge distortion.
Now, sadly, I can’t show you literally what I see through these binoculars, however, I can show you all of the beautiful details and moments that these incredible binoculars have gifted me with!
Marvelling at my Birds and Butterflies
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –Emily Dickinson
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –
Regular readers will know that nurturing my garden birds is truly one of my greatest passions in this world.
My passion for feeding birds started in early childhood as my grandparents both adored this hobby (for my garden bird series click here). We always had multiple feeders in the garden and outside of this, I visited wildlife spots to discover other birds.
Whether you are at home, or at a wildlife spot, a pair of binoculars to marvel at nature’s enchanted creatures is such a must-have and these luxury SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars are an essential for me now!
It’s been just incredible beyond words to behold details of my birds with these binoculars. It simply takes my breath away to see them in such detail and to behold their magnificence so close up. I see more clearly than ever their glistening feathery coats, and to be honest, even watching them eat in such close detail has enchanted me! It’s been so curious to note how the tits just ‘grab and go’ with the food but the finches will linger and stay for minutes at a time and gobble up as much as possible!
As well as welcoming the above birds to my garden (and many more not featured!) to feed, I also adore creating spaces for my visiting birds to nest.
As I write this, my soon-to-be family of blue tits are filling their nest with moss and will later add the fluff to the top that I have left for them near to their feeders. Watching the birds take these supplies with my SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars, and then following them to their nest is just the most special sight in the whole entire world.
Outside of nuturing garden birds I’ve also recently set up a home for butterflies! My Great Uncle was devoted to butterflies and this is something I wanted to do in honour of him.
So far I have a house that they can shelter in, and then a feeder where I’m making butterfly nectar for them to enjoy. It’s been just wonderful to have this addition to my garden and once I am more familiar with how these angelic creatures love to be cared for, I’ll share many more tips and news soon! For now, just watching them in such detail with my SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars has been indescribably breathtaking for me.
Watching the Wonders from my Whimsical Wendy House
As many of you will know, I recently converted an old wooden summer house in the garden into a whimsical pastel Wendy House! It’s now fully finished, apart from a few finishing touches, and will be the focus of my Whimsy World newsletter that goes out on the first Wednesday of each month. To sign up to get your exclusive tour, head below this post, (or above!) to join me!
This spot has been my absolute everything. The house itself is such a sun-trap and has been adorned in my favourite pastel shades. Inside, it also has creature comforts that soothe me in all ways. It really is a spot with copious charm and it’s my slice of serenity and enchantment come to life!
Whenever I go to my little house I always pack a bag of things to take down with me and my SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars are a necessity.
I have a beautiful view of my garden and surroundings in this spot so I can perfectly see my birds and butterflies! So much so that right now, it’s where I do all of my nature spottings! As a result, I store all my bird and butterfly books in my house because something new often greets me and I love to delve deeper into all my sightings!
The SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars come in a lovely sturdy bag that is perfect for keeping the binoculars safe and clean when you’re I’m not using them. I also love having caps for the front so nothing is stratched.
Overall, the binoculars are definitely on the heavier side, but the quality is so supreme that I’m more than happy to take them with me wherever I go! When life opens up more, I am SO excited to take them to one of my favourite nature spots here in Dorset.
Capturing My Enchanted Spring Garden
As well as my birds and butterflies, I’ve also treasured using my SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars to admire the blooms of Spring through florals.
This has been the second year in a row now where not only have I been in the same place twice in a year (very unusual for me!), but I have welcomed deep slowness to meet me so that I am able to truly pay attention to all around me.
Right now, my garden is in various stages of blooming. The first blossom arrived early in March, and each and every day, something new trees or plants bloom into their next magnificent stage of being.
This really opened my heart and mind to the fact that we will all surely bloom when the time is right for us. Naively before these two years of deep stillness, I thought my garden all worked to one clock, but that’s just not the case. Nature just doesn’t work like our man-made world artificial pressures.
As I write this in April, I’m surrounded by trees in full bloom, and others that are gently making their way to their goal of being fully-bloomed flowers and trees.
As I zoom in with my SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars on the tender buds that are yet to bloom, before they are about to open up to become what they are about to become, I am reminded that they are also equally beautiful in their present state.
One day at a time we are all growing and blossoming in the most tender and gentle of ways. From a distance, this might not be evident, but up close and deeply zoomed in, we can see that life is blooming within us and outside of us when the time is just so.
To me, mirroring nature in such a sacred way is where the beauty is.
It’s been such a joy and great honour to share my enchanted garden magnified with you thanks to the incredible SkyGenius 10×50 Powerful Binoculars.
Now I’d love to hear from you: what parts of the season you’re in right now feel most enchanted to you? Do you love to observe nature up close like I do? What treasures are found within your surroundings?
For me, what has felt so special is viewing with awe and wonder what magic is outside my window. And despite the bombardment of bad news, and my multiple health conditions, it’s reminded me that I do live in a world that is magical. And within this magic, there is one energy that is pervading all things and our world is full of so much interconnectivity.
I’ve had a deeper understanding of what it is to seek an enchanted life where we can see that we are not separate from nature. In fact, that we are an expression of nature.
Moreover, I’ve learned that enchantment is just as genuine as material things that we can touch and taste. What is hidden, and what can’t be seen with our eyes, is real. In fact, the revealing of what exists in secret is the spirit of Spring. May we always be excited by the enchantment and the pursuit of this glorious season both within us and outside of ourselves.
Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you so much to SkyGenius, for allowing me share my enchanted garden with my readers in this way.
