Looking Up and Looking Down,...

Yesterday the outer bands of clouds generated by tropical storm Hanna gave us a heavy grey sky all day. Only a few sprinkles of rain fell. The Adirondacks are several hours drive inland from the Atlantic coast so we had only a dreary and cool day.

I stood outside my carport facing the west to take the photo above,.... as I turned to go back in the house I realized right at my feet there were several small Queen Anne's Lace flowers growing by the edge of the lawn.
It is good to not be too busy looking up to look down,.... or not too busy looking down to look up. Sometimes a lovely thing is right there waiting for you to notice it!

You're so right about the little things just waiting to be noticed. There's so much enjoyment to be had by just slowing down a little and looking around.

I'm glad you didn't get too much rain from the remnants of that Hanna storm... that sky looks pretty dreary.
The flowers are pretty... very nice photo.

Lovely photos. We got lots of rain down here in Northern Virginia, but nothing too bad really.
