Personal Photography – Mid-Summer
I am trying to get caught up on all of my backlogged photos. These are from mid-July when I was at my parents’ house for my cousin’s baby shower. My parents have a beautiful yard and I always make sure I take at least 15-20 minutes to wander around their yard with my camera.

They have a pretty little pond on one side of the house that my dad built. It’s been up for about five years but it’s still a little bit of a work in progress. He can never quite get the waterfall set to his satisfaction, but I think it’s gorgeous! The water lilies have been doing beautifully and every frog in the area seems to have moved into that pond. The pond is maybe 10 feet long and 7 wide, but we counted at least six or seven frogs in the ten minutes we stood by it. If I had a bigger yard (and more time) I’d love to build one. The frogs are just so cute! And I love the sound of running water. Someday, I plan to build a little indoor fountain to put in my office so I can listen to it while I write.
