On a recent business trip, I took a short walk through Founder’s Garden on the University of Georgia campus. As luck would have it, my walk followed shortly after a rain shower.
We recently returned from a quick family trip up north to Manitoba. My middle son was enchanted by this field of canola and how small it made the grain bin look. I loved the bright yellow flowers and their contrast with the blue sky.
I recently returned from a visit to Seattle, where we were checking out the site of a future conference.

Suffice … More Australian Adventures Part 1 – Melbourne
