Creating While Waiting!

This quarantine has been hard for me – I like to be out and about with my camera as much as possible and that has been limited this Spring. People who know me, know that I LOVE photography (I get grumpy when I am away from my camera too long) and gardening.

This Spring I have been super busy in the gardens of the house we moved into in November. The house sat empty all last Summer and the gardens have needed a lot of work. This has also provided me with an opportunity to photograph a lot of flowers. And I am very lucky that my neighbors let me photograph their gardens as well.

When the weather hasn’t cooperated with my for gardening, I have been working on various photographic projects in the house (with some strange looks from my pups while doing so I might add!). And I am currently working on revamping my photography blog while waiting to see what ‘normal life’ will be like after the virus.

As Albert Einstein said “Creativity is contagious ~ pass it on!”

Monarch Butterflies

Recently I went to the Butterfly Festival at the University of Tennessee Arboretum in Oak Ridge. Watching and photographing these beauties was an amazing experience.

They say the if you see one fly by you, it symbolized transformation and re-birth. They bring change, transformation and new opportunities.  Therefore, they say if you see a monarch butterfly flying around you – it just might be a sign that you need change.
