There’s something very reaffirming about connecting with nature. It’s almost like your soul recognizes its place in the grand scheme of things. On a deeper level, you can sense being a part of something magical and big. At least that’s what I feel…when the mosquitos aren’t out, of course.

I took these photos a few weeks ago at a quiet pond near my family cottage.

My grandfather transplanted some water lilies and has been quite pleased at how well they’ve taken to their new home.

More photos after the jump…
