"G"ratitude

Geraniums - specifically red. These flowers are hardy enough to make it through a hot Arizona summer and I love the red color. They look very festive in our ceramic planter boxes with brightly painted trim.



Grand Canyon - I mean, need I say more? It is just totally awesome. Totally.
Green - as in green grass. Not much of that in the desert. And sometimes I yearn for easy on the eye green grass. For the smell of freshly mown lawn. For the feel of young grass on my bare feet.
Gratitude in general. I am grateful for opportunities to reflect on the things I am grateful for. Gratitude....
