The view from my handlebars...

Okay. So these were not taken while I was actually on my bike, I had to get off the bike to kneel beside them for the shot. 

Anyhow, I haven't taken that many photos this past month because I've been incredibly busy, so I made a point to carry my camera with me this morning. On my way home from church I had stopped at a stop sign and looked down and these were right beside me. As I knelt down to take these photos it reminded me of two things. One is that beauty is all around us and right next to us, always. And it also reminded me how therapeutic it is for me to take photos. With that said, I thought I'd share them.
