look any further

"...if I ever go looking for my heart's desire again, I won't look any further than my own backyard; because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with.
Dorothy was right - there is no place like home... "
Look up
This voluntary maple started spouting in our flowerbed about 10 years ago after giving it TLC and replanting to middle of front yard, it's become quite the tree.  Sometimes you don't plan for things and they turn out to be just what you needed.

Look down
Standing on Mount Washington in our own version of Bonaire in our backyard with my newly pinkified toes. Having fun with shadows. A little freesia and marigold mark the way like the yellow painted stones mark the dive sites in Bonaire.

Using your creative imagination, you can see our flowerbed is clearly in the shape of Bonaire.  The upper most rock represents the National Park and the rock in the grass is Klein Bonaire (which means Small Bonaire) Many of the marigolds that we have dotting the edge of the flowerbed didn't make it this year, so we'll get some more.

Sometimes things sprout that you don't expect, and sometimes you need to go out and get what you want!
