Suburban Backyard Adventures!

While we don’t all live on farms or in the countryside, that doesn’t mean that we have to miss out on the beauty of nature. It is all around us if you take the time to look. I spent this morning strolling through a local nursery, in awe at the sheer size of the place and in wonder of all the magnificent plants. Coming home, I decided that I have not spent nearly enough time in my backyard as I would like. Armed with my camera and my trusted companions – Dodge and Harley, I set out to capture some of the changes the garden is going through and found some sweet little surprises on the way!

Is there something staring you in the face, that you haven’t noticed or you’ve taken for granted? Take some time out to explore and be grateful for the little things. Start to notice the little bursts of colour that bring joy to your day!!

 

Happy exploring!
