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…
