I've been not a little flower obsessed lately. This is our first summer living here at Ridge Pond and every new flower, every new stage of growth in the plants and trees captures the attention. A busy time of year to say the least but when possible I've tried to slow down long enough to smell the roses (and other blooms) and take some photos to share. Like all seasons (well maybe not that long cold one we just recovered from) summer flies by and it's a daily balance of enjoying and appreciating it while getting all the things done that need doing. Summer balance.
Just a couple more colorful shots...
