Where hope grows

I love crocus’. They’re hope in my garden. They’re a promise that beautiful things are here; are on the way. They proof that after every cold, unpredictable winter comes something beautiful.

You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own. :Michelle Obama

My place in the world. (WP Photo Challenge)

This week we were asked …

For this week’s photo challenge, explore what it means to find your place in the world. Where’s your safe space? Where do you go when you need to feel inspired or cheered up? Do you prefer to feel cozy and comforted in a smaller town or do you thrive on the buzz of a big city? If landscapes aren’t your thing, you can even explore portraits by playing with scale or fashion.

Let loose and give us a glimpse of who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I once read that ‘what you photograph shows who you are.’  When reviewing my photosP_20180506_115758_vHDR_On I have endless photos of nature. The shapes and textures that provide “scope for the imagination”. I feel the most content surrounded by shades of green and a soft wind kissing my cheeks. My grand scheme seems to be nuzzled up close to the flowers.
