Make adjustments

Small thoughts on my birthday

“All good work is done the way ants do things, little by little”. ~ Lafcadio Hearn Captured in our little garden, a little macro photography for my birthday today.  It was drizzling early morning so I wasn’t able to get my annual birthday sunrise.  So I decided to look around in our garden instead.
