Living life with a child can speed up life quite considerably. Living life in a big family can move the pace to near the speed of light. Life goes by so insanely quickly, that sometimes we miss so many important details that can really enrich daily life.

As many of my followers have noticed, I love gardens, and I love stopping and focusing on details. It’s one way I am able to slow down the break-neck speeds of my life and to take a breath.

Our family recently visited Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. These are some details that caught my eye while there.
