"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."  
-  Maya Angelou

"It's raining."

"What?  Rain wasn't even in the forecast for today."

"'s raining."

My husband called me on his way to work.  He knew I wouldn't have looked out the window quite yet and I wouldn't be happy if rain ruined my plans to photograph the sunflowers.

I got a text shortly after his call from my friend who was planning to go with me.

'Are you still game?'

'Yes.'  I replied.

I really needed my camera in hand, sunflowers in my face and a friend by my side.  I was willing to brave a little rain the radar said may pass soon for some photo-therapy.

We were expecting mud, but we ended up not needing our rain boots after all.  The field was fairly dry and evidently didn't see the rain we did at home just a hour or two before.

It was just what I needed.

I hope my pictures brighten your day the way the sunflowers brightened mine.  :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!

100 Day Project

"If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you."  -  Les Brown

At first, I planned to take pictures of anything I found beautiful, not necessarily flowers.  But my project #seebeautyhere has evolved into flower and nature pictures, a majority documenting my yard coming back to life after a long winter.

A Very Windy Day

"Anything you can't control is teaching you how to let go."  -  Jackson Kiddard

It was a very, very windy day last week when a friend and I went to Cox Arboretum to find some spring blossoms.

I Judge A Book By It's Cover

"Your assumptions are your windows on the world.  Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in."  -  Isaac Asimov

I hate to admit it...but I do.
