Embellished Ordinary

What could be more ordinary than a wall, a fence, a boardwalk, a shed or path? And yet, the ordinary can be made extraordinary…

A shed, similarly adorned:

What about the path you are walking on? Watch your step, there are beauties beneath your feet!

Fences provide a place to perch or somewhere to peek out of:

First Daffodils

Walls may be more solid than fences, but still you can find wonders in the ordinary:

Even a simple twig can be a place to explore
