i carry a camera with me.  it's not that i'm particularly interested in capturing the moment nor do i have any real interest in photography.  i carry a camera and i take pictures because doing so reminds me to look more closely at the everday things in life.  the things i might otherwise miss or take for granted.  it teaches me to see the beauty and wonder around me.  on a more practical level i take pictures to share with family and friends i don't see often.  and i take pictures to use as references to learn more about the plants and critters i see and to keep a visual record of the progression of the gardens and all the amazing things staal is doing.
i've taken hundreds of pictures this spring.  here are just a few...

 thanks for taking a look.
