Last Saturday, we had 3 showings at our house so we had to leave for most of the day. We decided to go up to our property and spend some time there. A few years ago, I made a patriotic picnic blanket. Since the weather has finally started to warm up, we decided to put the blanket to good use and have a Summer mountain picnic.
There’s nothing more rejuvenating than being in nature As John Burroughs says, “I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.”. It never fails that after we’ve spent some time in the mountains or the woods, I always come back home feeling uplifted and happier. Nature, to me, is like worship. It’s awe-inspiring, humbling, and restorative.
And it was even more special for our mountain picnic because it was on our own land! We’ve been camping, hiking, and picnicking in lots of places over the years, but never on a place like this that we can call our own. We feel truly blessed!
Andy and I also recently downloaded an app called plant snap that identifies various plants and flowers. We want to learn more about some of the wildflowers growing on the property, so this handy little tool is helping us. The pretty little flowers on the picnic basket are called prairie bluebells, just in case you wanted to know!
My sister, Tiffany, is a nature photographer, and I’ll have to ask her to take some pictures while she’s visiting this Summer because her photos are much better than mine.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
