my mother's backyard :: nature photography

growing up, i somehow completely missed how lovely our backyard was in the spring.  i'm sure i was too busy working on my tan, talking on our cordless phone, or well... just wasn't home.

now, when i visit my mother, and i play with my boys in her yard, i am astonished at how colorful it is.  she has chosen carefully over the years and picked the most beautiful trees and bushes.  when i push my boys on the swings, their little feet fly high up and brush against the blooms causing a shower of color.  i inhale deep to enjoy the sweet scent.  i point out this moment to my sons and they notice...

"thank you grandma".
