In honor of Earth Day, Paul, Paulie, Elizabeth and I decided to do a nature series from our own yard. Every shot in the series is of a plant/flower in our yard or taken while standing in our yard.
Finn's little hand clutching a dandelion
another bud discarded by Finn
the just-sprung leaves on our crepe myrtle
my new mexican heather plant
petunias planted this weekend
Philip, clutching some clover buds
our front porch
random weeds in our yard
the neighbor's horse pasture
as seen from our backyard
As we were heading inside, another spring storm brought this rainbow. How fitting to end our Earth Day photo shoot with a rainbow. (Yes, we have a horse pasture on one side, suburbia on the other.)
None of the kids' shots were directed by me in any way. Didn't they do a fabulous job?!
What a great rainbow picture. Perfect ending ...ReplyDelete
Happy Earth Day!
wonderful photos. there are some budding photographers in your midst for sure. they did a wonderful job. i agree with Erin; how special to have a rainbow shot for the end.ReplyDelete
happy earth day.
Gorgeous shots. What talent! Happy Earth Day!ReplyDelete
What a great way to include the kids in earth day. I love what they chose to take pictures of. :)ReplyDelete
We're having fun playing with our back yard, and I'm sure we will regret it all as Kieran gets old. With any luck, though, we'll be out of suburbia and living with a LOT more acreage before he gets too much older. :)
Happy Earth Day!!
Beautiful photos! What a special treat to witness the rainbow on Earth day.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! How great that you include them in your photographing-- they have good eyes!ReplyDelete
VERY nice guys!ReplyDelete
I love clover...I think that is my fave just because I love it so much.
And the rainbow...how fun to see that! A day with a rainbow is always a good day. :)
Beautiful photos. How perfect that you even had a rainbow!ReplyDelete
