A Summer Morning

This week I took some time to enjoy my backyard on a beautiful summer morning. Our backyard was not anything special to me when we first moved in to this house, but now it has become one of my favorite spots. It's such a pleasure having beautiful spaces around you. 

Enjoy some snippets of my favorite space.

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.
