July….half way through 2022 and this month, we’re getting low with PJ’s photo challenge. It’s so easy to focus on what’s in front of us at eye level. After all, making sure we see what’s coming at us can help us swerve when those curve balls are hit directly at us.
What we are not as good at doing is looking either up or down at the world around us. Looking up at the night sky reminds us we are but a small part of a much larger universe. Likewise, looking down, we can discover a totally different perspective about life.
Getting Low 1
We’re calling this little friend, Jesse. Jesse sits outside our back door at night when the light comes on. Of course, the light serves a security purpose but it also attracts a large variety of bugs to the area swathed in light. I imagine Jesse will be a very large toad by the end of the summer.
Getting Low 2
Cabo had to get very low to crawl under the edge of the bedspread. I’ve never had a pupper who loves to sleep in the morning as much as he does…..and I’m not complaining!
Getting Low 3 and 4
One would need to get very low to see the fairies in Peanut and Twix’s fairy garden. Blue star creeper, creeping thyme, day lilies, sedums and creeping phlox hide them well.
Getting Low 5
Sometimes it takes a keen eye to see low treasures like this baby redbud tree growing in my sedum ground cover. I search for these babies and move them to the tree nursery where they (hopefully) grow until I can relocate them to their new home in the yard.
Those are my low fives for the month. Be sure to visit PJ’s blog to see how everyone else got low this month.
