This is a little succulent in my back garden that I would NEVER have got around to shooting if it weren’t for this 52 week challenge. It seems I never have time to get down and look close, to study the details and the glory in my garden unless I HAVE to. Very grateful to Ingz who is the inspiration behind this challenge. : )

This is my 6/52 for my fifty-two week photography challenge.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
