I feel like just yesterday I was cropping May 12th photos and look, it is time to share my June 12th photos. I decided to go this month with the suggested theme of outdoors. We live in a north suburb of Milwaukee in a very green area with plenty of beautiful views. Ella is taking an outdoor drawing camp this week and their Tuesday location was at Riveredge Nature Preserve. I never been there before and I was happy to discover another beautiful place just 30 minutes from our home. I took 2 pictures of the ponds and a picture of Ella's class marching into the prairie. While waiting for Ella I stopped at Alterra coffee shop in Grafton and snapped a picture of the building, the view of Milwaukee river just behind the building and a row of gorgeous peonies. In the afternoon Ella had a gymnastics class in Cedarburg and I added two more pictures to my collection - Starburcks coffee shop where I often wait for Ella to finish her gymnastics class and a cute little place just across the Starbucks called Out & Out. They sell food made with local products and have a killer custard. I finished with few pictures of out home - the front door with the stairs, the wild backyard, our new hammock and the tire swing and one of the wild flowers that just popped in out yard.
