We had such a beautiful June here in my home state. Everything is now at that peak green that will always be reminiscent of Minnesota summers for me. Even when I lived in California, I always talked about how much I missed the bright green color of the trees and grass that we always had at home.
So what did I do to enjoy these beautiful summer days? Well, I went on a lot of long walks and hikes, stopped at a greenhouse to pick up some plants for my patio, saw a few pretty sunsets, found a sign of love, and drove the road less traveled.
Some of those things above might seem philosophical, but you’ll see what I mean as you go through the photos below. So let’s get to it, shall we?
A photo roundup from June:
I took a nature walk at Wood Lake Nature Center. One of my favorite spots to snap a photo is on the floating boardwalk. If you time it right, you might even get the long walkway all to yourself.
One of my favorite weekend go-to’s, if I need some inspiration, is Tonkadale Greenhouse. It has whimsical plant displays that will make you want to buy everything so that you can have a small piece of the pretty in your own home. It’s a spot I recommend to all of my friends.
A sunset view from the treetop spot. I love those pretty cotton candy skies.
“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.” I always think of that quote from the movie Love Actually whenever I find stuff like this. It makes me happy.
This photo might not look like much, but I found it to be an incredibly peaceful spot with the surround sound of birds singing and the quiet burbling of the creek. Plus, on the bridge (not pictured), someone had written, “Everything will be okay.”
Sometimes, when I need to clear my head, one of my favorite things to do is get in the car and drive. Not along freeways, though. I love going out into the country and find old red dirt roads to explore. They always keep me wondering what’s just around the bend. Or in this case, what’s over the hill.
Let’s go places,
