The Gift of Gratitude: Flowers

Today celebrates Day 20 of my 31 Days of Gratitude: Flowers


Gardening brings me so much joy.  The process is true therapy for me.  Some people collect books…I collect plants!  We have numerous gardens at the house.  Although I
do not have a favorite garden, I do have a few favorite flowers…  Here is a little color, for those of you looking out your window at a blanket of white! (I thought I would add a few of my favorite critters, too!)

A Sunny Perspective

Photo Challenge: Scale

Take a moment to observe the world from a new perspective.  The beauty you will discover is breathtaking…trust me!

Most would see this as a little patch of wild flowers and continue on their way.  Not me!

When I noticed this patch of beautiful yellow wildflowers, I had to get a closer look.  There I was, in the driveway, on my belly!  My family does not even question my actions anymore!  And look at this beautiful view…

Belly down, yet sunny side up!”

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
