Photography as Stress Reliever

I was kind of  lost and stressed out not having my kids at home on the first day of school so I grabbed my camera and went to my garden.  I clicked.. and clicked.. and clicked.. and clicked some more, till my stress died down a bit.  So glad to have a camera because photography is one of my stress reliever.  
Hosta
Cleome
Forever Living
Impatiens
Aeonium  Echeveria  succulent plant
Shells that remind me of my place back home
Trumpet Vine Seeds
Pumpkin Blossom, never had any luck of this  veggies.  It just blooms and blooms but no fruit at all.
Over grown cherry tomatoes
Morning Dews
If you were a number, what will it be?
Just reminds me of the hours I have to wait to get my kids from school

Your photos are fantastic! I love the one of the Cleome, it reminded me of my Mom. She had Cleomes everywhere and they were quite prolific. I have never had much luck getting them to live here. They do well for a few weeks, then just turn a light brown and die. I hated it when my kiddos headed back to school too. Have a great weekend, Nan

NoW I know where the kids are! I forget about school having started.

Beautiful photos, all of them. Love the seashells - the ocean (when calm and not in it or on it) is quite peaceful!

Happy Pink Saturday, again!
