Garden #Perspectives- #SundayStills


Hungry bee in Hot Lips Salvia

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge is all about perspectives as chosen by Terri Webster Schrandt. You can see her photos and join the challenge here.

I’ve squared all the photos for my entry for Becky’s for July Square Perspectives challenge.

We’re spending most of our day out in the garden, so I thought I’d share some of my recent photos with you 🙂

To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

We don’t what this is called, so we named it Dragon’s Tongue, lol
Raspberry Shortcake- a short, thornless berry bush

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

Our garden is small, but mighty! Here you can see strawberries, blueberries, apple, peach, and a variety of flowers hummingbirds and bees love.

Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful,’ and sitting in the shade.

Won’t you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.

Nature’s Wonders- #SundayStills #photography


Nature is filled with wonders- we only have to open our eyes to behold the beauty.

This week’s #SundayStills #challenge from Terri Webster Schrandt is Near and Far. You can join in here.

Above is a photo taken last summer looking from the back of our postage stamp yard, forward. See the apple? First year tree and already producing!

Upon closer reflection, I found this cute little guy wandering the leaves.

My girl, soaking up the sun.

Hide and seek.

Our jungle.

Enjoying nature’s bounty.

Sometimes, it’s necessary to slow down and just breathe ❤
