20 Steps Outside My Door



This was taken from about 2 steps outside my door, the horses themselves are further away than that. Having a nap, muck never stops a sleepy horse.

20 Steps Outside My Door



This was taken in a winter snowfall about 2 years ago. I was looking for another photo the other day and came across this. Taken about 10 steps from my door, I love the snow and the cat is my best buddy.

Focus on Life - Green



Green is the prompt for this weeks Focus on Life blog challenge. My garden has a lot of green going on right now, we've had a fair amount of rain. My mint if going crazy! I'm still trying to eradicate it from the one bed I stupidly planted it in before I knew how invasive it is. But the mint planter above will stay, the bee's love it.
