Do You See What I See?

1-It’s that time of year again–the time when I can’t seem to get anything else done because I just want to be outside, looking for spots of beauty to capture with my camera. Mornings are my favorite time of day –when the birds are singing and the sunshine is just beginning to wipe away the dew. Time disappears in those moments. Do you know what I mean? What activity do you do that makes time disappear?

Since you can’t come along with me into the fields, I thought I would share some of my recent photos. As you can see, there is no shortage of beauty! Which one is your favorite?

Enjoy! And have a wonderful Thursday!!
