A hobbit's doorstep

The focus of the image is a lovely, bright bunch of flowers right outside the doorstep of a hobbit hole in Hobbiton. Throughout The Lord of the Rings series, J. R. R. Tolkien creates epics in which hobbits leave their snug homes for marvelous adventures. This photograph shows what they left and what will still wait for them at home.
