Sometimes, or more often than not, I tend to take the good for granted and forget how sweet life can be. I complain about the heat and the sun and the bugs more often than I should in the summer. Taking pictures reminds me of all the good in the summer. The five pics above are from a visit to 868 Estate Vineyards, near Purcellville, Virginia. The five below are from the grounds at the Dodona Manor in Leesburg, Virginia, where I've been taking my drawing students all last week. Enjoy.
