Stress Relief

I had absolutely given up shooting roses. They've been done so much & I just can never seem to get some new that excites me. Last week, I cam out of a particularly stressful meeting & was greeted by a small rose garden with some fun colored ones. I shot away my anxiety & was shocked when I returned home to find some really, really sweet ones. I have a good dozen that I really like...but my husband helped me choose this one.
Around the time I started blogging, Tom rediscovered some long, lost friends at a funeral...much to my surprise, this woman in Maryland (whom I had ever met) new my blog..from someone in Vermont (that I also didn't know). I had only been posting for about 10 days. What a wonderful treat that they are able to stay with us this week !!! Tonight, we all went down to the landing to try to spy the beaver....6 of us in all. They were onto us. Moments after 4 headed back to the house, their son & I saw the pair of beavers sneak way across the mirror surface of the near darkened lake. It was neat, but I really want them to see them closer up. In any case, Stephanie agreed with me on the soft-focus one, so I am including it for your enjoyment. I think it captures more than a flower. It shares a moment...a feeling...another place & way of seeing. I hope you like it.
