Perspective

My flowers are looking a bit weary. The extreme Summer heat and lack of rain has taken it's toll. With that in mind, I thought I'd look at the garden from a different perspective.


 Sometimes we need to stop...


and take a closer look to see the beauty.


You can find it in unexpected places.


If you take the time to see


the texture of a leaf or a rock,


or a splash of color.


Take the time to look beyond the beautiful flowers.
Have a wonderful day!

Lynn,
Sorry about the confusion in the above comment, it's really late here and I didn't have on my glasses, is that a good excuse, or how about, I've been on the compter so long I've gone compter mad? Yeah, I like that one the best! Thanks again for the sweet comment.

Your garden looks lovely!! The heat here..Texas..has been unbearable, I have to water something every day and still I'm losing plants. My japanese maple lost all it's leaves but I'm hoping it will come back.

I'm your newest follower and I will be back to visit!
