Raindrop Renewal - Duluth, MN

Each summer I spend ample time in garden renewing my spirit and my connection to nature. I often think about the care and love that goes into crafting these natural works of art and wonder how many people pass them by without a second glance. For me, this photo captured a rare moment in time where I stopped to just breathe and appreciate my surroundings. As you view the photo, I challenge you take a deep breath in (pause) and exhale. Repeat as needed.
