On the Ground

Things look different, down on the ground.

And I'm sure my neighbors enjoy the crazy lady rolling around in the lawn with her camera. Got to keep the masses happy, right? Every neighborhood needs a nut. I guess that'll be me this
week...

There's so much to see, though. And the weather, well, it wasn't raining. So we'll call that GOOD. That's actually fantastic. And someday, I'll stop bitching about the weather around here. Like, when I'm dead.


While on my tummy, I snapped:
Some flowers that we thought were gone, but came back to life. And they're so special, because they came from my mother in law's hospital room.

And do you know what this is? Thyme. I thought it was edible thyme and was informed by my husband that it isn't. And I was like, for goodness sake, why would you plant a herb that isn't edible... This is why...
Oh!

It's flowering thyme. A gorgeous little purple-y carpet in the flower bed.


Then I had a visitor, our first baby, Bridget the cat. She had been rolling around in the dirt and looks, well, homeless.

I think she needs a haircut. But I'm terrified of the claws of fury.



Finally, I had to include a shot of someone who is on the ground all the time. Her whole world consists of things under two feet tall...


My gorgeous little cue ball niece at her first Father's Day gathering.
Baby cheeks. Num.

Gerbera daisies do that- their heads fall off and grow back :) I'm always getting down on the ground for a shot and get all kinds of weird looks. Glad someone is joining the ranks!

I had to laugh at your first message - we're the first house into our neighborhood, so I think I'm that crazy lady too. Either way, love the shots.
