Our garden, through the eyes of a child

I've been spending weeks indoors, due to major foot surgery.  This is the time of year when most of my garden is in bloom, too, and I miss being outside with the flowers.  Through the windows, I can see much of my garden, but it's not the same as being right there.  So, I entrusted my good Canon Rebel t2i to my 11 year old daughter, who has a keen eye and an interest in photography, and sent her outdoors.

Our garden, as seen through the eyes of my child:

These purplish-blue hydrangeas are from our neighbor's garden.  The bush is enormous!

The bush below is near my shed.  About 10 years ago, another neighbor was digging this up and tossing it so they could plant a central air conditioning unit instead.  I asked if we could have it.  It had been a deep, rich blue that almost didn't look real.  When it came to live in my yard, it became pink and purple due to the higher alkaline levels in my soil.

Yes, she found a heart shaped hydrangea blossom on one of the bushes!  This was not 'Photoshopped' in any way!

I think she did a great job!  Not only did she give me a tour of my garden through pictures, but she gave me a tour through her own eyes, and that is priceless.

Peace and blessings to you,
