Today’s post is a little different. I would love hear from YOU. I want to know if you volunteer in your community, and if so, why? What do you do, how long have you been volunteering, lessons you have learned because of it, and what’s your favorite part about it?  Volunteering is something that I really believe and enjoy, how about you?

You see, last weekend was my first time volunteering in this new community of mine and I had such a great time. I was part of a small group made up of co-workers, we participated in a large annual community clean-up day where we helped beautify (aka pick up trash) a trail that runs a long a large river that goes thru the valley where I now live.

The foto was taken toward the end of the morning, a few hours into the clean-up event. My group and I had finished cleaning up one portion of the bike trail and moved on to another side, right off the trail there was a huge, I mean HUGE bush of green vines full of bright colored flower. I could not help myself and I had to take several foto’s, here’s one. The event was awesome! I had a great time contributing to the well-being of the parkway, but I must say I loved the nature aspects. I loved walking around the trails and exploring a new area. It felt so go to get out early in the morning, walk around, mingle with others, but at the same time knowing that I was contributing to a greater cause – the well-being and health of the parkway, and all the little critters and animals that live in that area.

So, once again, why do you volunteer?

One of my favorite hobbies is to find interesting blogs where I can find inspiration or learn something new. Last week as I was looking around on WordPress I came across something interesting, inspirational, and I can learn something new. Each week they provide a theme, then one is urged to interpret it, take a photo and post it on our blog. Here’s this weeks challenge: Purple.

My interpretation:

Thanks to my parents garden for providing me with much inspiration. Here’s a purple Glandiolus flower in their back yard.

Looking forward to the new themes, new one posted every Friday. You should also know that I have a weekly photo series called Foto Friday, came back and check it out each and every week.

Story behind Foto: I was taking a walk during my lunch break and I came across these gorgeous flowers. They definitely remind me of summer, which is pretty much my favorite season. Hope you enjoy.

Story Behind Foto: A friend of mine took this foto, while giving back to the community (volunteering) at a local garden for dogs, and I am so grateful she allowed me to feature it. Isn’t it amazing?! Thank you, friend! Hope you all enjoy, till next post.

In an effort to combine my “dual-cultures” (Latino(a) and American), photography, and love of nature I am introducing a new series to the blog, which I am calling:  “Foto Friday.”  The word “foto” translates to photo, making the title photo Friday!

Story behind foto: on a Saturday morning several weeks ago, I was woken up early by my boyfriend who asked if I would join him on his weekly fishing trip, and I did. While he fished, I took photos and more photos. Here I am sharing a photo I was very excited about because I caught the bee in action! Yep, I was less than a foot away from the bee, while it was busy eating the nectar from the flower, the results were worth the risk.

Hope you all enjoy what’s to come.
