In flight bee!

Five years ago, at a young age; I had a stroke. My busy life was forced to slow down. Slowing down is no easy task. My garden continues to teach me how to move through life at a slower pace. The gift of slowing down gives me the opportunity to notice the beautiful simplicity all around. This photo was taken one sunny Friday morning as I was checking on my flowers and veggies! This little bee was doing his thing!
