 A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio, In The Garden series.
Anther rainy day in Houston -
sometimes the garden comes to you!

This leaf was sitting on my windshield
as I drove away from my house this morning.
I noticed and paused at the 
stop sign at the end of our street,
grabbed my cell phone, and got a shot.
 A neighbor had just pulled up behind me
so I had start driving again.
I am glad I got the one shot,
because by the time I got to the next
stop sign, it had blown away!

driving in the rain
a yellow leaf passenger
joins me for the ride
