Photo Monday – Backyard

The house where my parents live, where I grew up, has a small wooded area with a stream at the bottom. I used to go down there when I was bored.  And then, I just wanted to follow the stream as far as I could but was afraid of getting lost.  I never ended up wandering very far.  But it was so pretty!  With rocks and rushing water.  Enough to make it interesting but still safe.  We took the girls there.

Not much rushing water I’m afraid.  August didn’t allow for much water…

And these things!  They’re prickly but not painful.  They just stick to your clothes and hair and… yuck.

But hey, I got down close to the water, as close as my camera would let me. And I played.

I really really really want a macro lens…
