The ground view

Don’t you just love flowers?

How delicate they are and all the different kinds and colors that exist?

I was appreciating Hayes’s wild flower garden the other day and I just really wanted to lie down and look at the flowers from the ground up. (I really secretly wished I could be a flower fairy for a moment)

Of course I didn’t because I would have crushed all the flowers so instead, I decided to take some pictures with my camera almost touching the ground.

I love the way the pictures came out and love looking at the flowers from a different perspective.

Thought I’d share some with you.

Happy sunday!

Monday outdoors picture

We are in West Virginia and will be for the next two weeks.

There have been many outdoor moments and I’m sure there will be many more.

However, Lily and cousin Adelaide playing together outside this weekend were some of my favorite outdoor moments.

Here is not only one but two of my favorite pictures of Lily and Adelaide.

Botanical morning

Earlier this week Lily and I went off on an early walk to check out our local Botanical Gardens.

Before Lily was born, Will and I went a few times and I’m so glad that I finally took her over there because we both had a great time.

It was still early enough (9am) so it wasn’t too hot yet and there were no people other than the employees working on the flower beds.

We took our time cruising through the grounds, we checked some new and old sculptures, there were lots of flowers to look at, we spotted an herb garden, we even got to sit and relax in the shade under a big and beautiful tree.

It was a wonderful morning!
