A simple stroll around the yard, I don't have to venture far to reap rewards.

I really miss a lot by not getting up to Virginia in the spring. I never get to see these blooms. Thanks so much for bringing them to me!

Susan your photos are amazing! I just taught a class for preschoolers and we read in a book that the Texas Mountain Laurel takes 10 years to go from seed to flower. Keep up the lovely photos.

I bet you don't even need to venture *outside* to reap rewards at your place... the view into the woods must be so lovely, let alone what you can find outdoors.

Beauty is all around you indeed.

Oh, and Happy Mothers' Day, too!
