My first garden in our first home! No roses in this picture yet, but I was so proud of my first attempt to create a garden. It bloomed so lush and full, and I genuinely enjoyed all the compliments from neighbors and friends!
Growing up, I used to play in the dirt outside all summer long, often with no shoes. I'd romp with friends through the woods, making forts and "dirt soup". My dad would carry me upstairs at the end of the day to wash my blackened feet in the bathtub.
I still like to play in the dirt. I love gardening and have taken that passion to the next level - capturing creation with a camera.

"A photographer who made a picture from a splendid moment, an accidental pose of someone or a beautiful scenery, is the finder of a treasure." ~Robert Doisneau
