Garden Harbor



seek inner beauty
in what seems ordinary;
find hidden treasures

~ ~ ~

I was going for a walk around my neighborhood today, and I just had to stop to take this photograph. So beautiful, peaceful, and inviting. I wonder what hidden treasures are beyond the garden gate. Happy Sunday!
