Sunset – July 15th

20140715-105249-39169240.jpg

Had to share this picture because sometimes a girl just want to feel the cool breeze on here face, hear the sound of a horse whinny in the distance, the cries of a hawk looking for dinner, and see fireflies blink in some kind of language only they understand. I breathed in deeply yesterday, and it filled up my soul with joy, and even though that soul still has longing for so much more, I breathed in deeply the day yesterday and I am better for it. I hope you all breathe in deeply the day!

Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens 3 – July 11th

20140711-104843-38923805.jpg

A little close up if some of the water lily’s at Powell Gardens. I broke a rule by stepping out on the rocks to snap this shot. I’m such a rebel! Even more fun was the signs I saw after I walked away from this area. “Don’t climb on rocks, Snake habitat!” Oops!
Now had I seen those signs before I probably wouldn’t have climbed on the rocks. I really don’t like snakes, at all, yuck, yuck, yuck! But I suppose it was worth it to get a photo of the flowers.

Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens 2 – July 9th

Another beautiful photo from my visit to Powell Gardens. They have this beautiful garden of water plants. One of the coolest things is they had plants, like succulents growing out of the walls around this particular garden. But there is this spot where you look out over some gorgeous water lily’s and listen to the sound of waterfalls. It was so beautiful, even though the day was kind of cloudy.

Have a blessed day!

Powell Gardens – July 8th

Sorry for not being on here very much lately. I’ve been so busy with work and life that there hasn’t been much time to blog. Forgive me!

Over the 4th of July holiday I had the chance to go see Powell Gardens. It is a beautiful botanical garden near Kansas City, Missouri. I had so much fun and so this week I will be posting photos from the trip.

Today’s photo was taken at the entrance to the garden, lovely! The sounds of the waterfall and the tropical plants were beautiful. But I loved the ceiling of this room, almost like the entire thing was a skylight. It let in this soft light that was so calming. I sat in this spot and enjoyed some yummy homemade blackberry ice cream that they have. So good!

Have a blessed day!

It’s Paying Off – July 2nd

20140702-082401-30241193.jpg

So as I alluded to yesterday, something very exciting has happened in the last month. Twice this month I have been approached about using my photography on two separate websites! And while this is small to most people this is huge to me. I am not a professional photography, I work as a accountant. So it’s been a blessing to watch my little hobby grow and see my work get out there. The latest place you can see my work is on a blog called Love Springfield, you can see it here. My photo and a couple of my words are titled The Water Rush.
So as my little hobby starts to grow and be seen I will share about it here. Interesting how life works, not what I expected, but I will enjoy the ride.

Have a blessed day!
Heather

By the way, the photo above is the one that was used. It was taken at the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden here in my city.
