The colors of joy: Monday musings


Today's #Mondaymusing depicts the colors that I find in abundance at this time of year.

You may be surprised by what you see. You don't necessarily have to travel to find beauty. It's right there, close to you. Often, it is the beauty that's the closest to us that is the easiest to miss.

summer's cone flower.


Question for you:  what are some of your every day beauties?
