reflected in the yard
I've had it in my mind to do something like this for a while, so I'm glad that this class gave me the motivation to actually carry it out!
As I was looking through these photos, I realized how lucky I am to live in such a lovely place. We don't have a bunch of land, but we have a good-sized yard with trees and a fire ring, and we have fantastic neighbors.
Just over ten months ago, the lower part of our yard--the entire area that you see in this photo--was covered with about eight feet of flood water. The river took over our whole town. We were so, so fortunate that the water only wrecked our basement and didn't make it onto the first floor.
It's incredible how the plants rebounded from the flood. We had to do some raking and re-seeding of the grass, but now our lawn is just as green as it ever was.
Looking through the photos that I took reminded me how many good things are in my life. It made me realize how much I am surrounded by LIFE.
