This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to, “depict something or someone you admire. Bonus points if you share a paragraph or two on the source of your admiration.”

Every day I stand out the front of our house and simply admire the work of Nature, the tiny bugs, fascinating flowers, big trees or interesting clouds. Not much is perfect, trees have fallen, branches are smashed, leaves and flowers have been eaten by bugs even the earth has been disturbed and left exposed in places but Nature never stops regrowing, replacing and renewing. The holes in the leaves and plants are a sign of new life in another form. Wherever I go from deserts to mountains, rainforests or beaches Nature always has my admiration.
