It has been a long time since we have been at home and up early enough to capture some early Saturday morning shots. The hectic rush of summer while having to work but still wanting to make every moment of sun count doesn’t leave much time for supping coffee and just being content in the moment! I am very grateful for the return of some routine, but a bit sad that we blinked and summer is now winding down – it always goes by so quickly. Yes, there are some duplicates from last week’s veggie garden pictures – they are simply too pretty not to share with the rest of the blooms!! Thankfully September brings my favourite flowers – Dahlias, Glads and of course, sunflowers!!
This week has provided my budding photographers with many opportunities to play with the camera, so many beautiful plants are blooming. I added a few interesting studies of bark that my older daughter took, there is a certain beauty that is exposed when shot close up through the eyes of a child. And of course, what gallery would be complete without some coleus and butterfly shots taken by my wee girl! What a lovely time of year to just sit and soak in the sun, the smells and the scenery!
