Simply Inspiration

Happy Spring to you!  It's a time for renewal and growth.  In that frame of mind,  I'm sharing some photos I've taken that I think are beautiful and inspiring.  There's a little bit of everything here: color, texture, animals, landscapes, and people I love.  I hope they'll inspire you, too.
