A Rural Point of View

Yesterday Craig and I (along with my sister, one of my brothers and one of my nieces) spent the day at my mom's. My dad died a few years ago, but my mom still lives in our family home about 80 miles south of where I live. It is the most restful, peaceful place I know. Best spa in the world, as I often say. I spent a couple of hours during the afternoon just walking around by myself with my camera. It's one of my favorite things to do. The weather was sunny and warm, which made for a beautiful day to see what nature had to offer.

Here are a few photos from my walk. I never left the property, except when I was in the middle of the road.

I love how the birdhouse seems to fit in perfectly on the ground where it has fallen.  

Things are put together in a very utilitarian, shabby and yet beautiful way. Everything is weathered and patched. There's a calmness about this simple place. It reminds me not to over-complicate things.


I'll have more photos throughout the week.

Enjoy your day.
