I got alot of great outside shots while we were home for Christmas. I found myself excusing myself to go outside and take shots of nature. I was really craving the rural setting of home. I saw creatures I've never seen before and soaked up nature.
Ooops, this is actually from here. We saw the cattle outside the window and ran to get our shoes on. By time we got outside, they had walked on.
I finally realized that since we've moved here, we aren't getting the outside time we used to and I can't stand it. Even in the winter we'd spend as long as we could stand outside(often a good 30 mins to an hour.) It's my New Year Resolution to find a way to get back to nature here in the city sprawl. One thing I realize I've instilled in Matthew is trash in nature is bad. Every time we go for a walk he talks about how bad trash is. It makes me proud. I've been toying with trying the Outdoor Challenges I found here. (And buying the book.)
For now I'm going to study my new container books and look at my grow it book and see if Matthew can come up with some stuff to grow while waiting for spring.
