Description: Ten digital photographs submitted by Michele Bingle-Graffius of her yard in Williamsburg, Virginia. Bingle-Graffius provided the following description with the submission: “A brief synopsis of my life during Covid. At the onset, I bordered on panic and deep dread. I felt helpless and overwhelmed. After about two weeks I became increasing helpless and needed an outlet. I began sewing face masks. I ran out of supplies; first elastic, then shoe laces that I was using as a substitute for elastic. Supplies continued to dwindle and I had made enough masks for our family, my husband and his coworkers (all of whom needed to continue to go into work during the shut-down) and my extended family. The weather began to break and get warmer. We spent more time outside working within our yard. If it were not for financial concerns and a need to conserve money in case my husband would loss income, we would have worked on remodeling the bathroom. Instead, we worked on landscaping and beautifying the yard. Our yard has been quite neglected for years before we bought the property last year and does need a ton of work. With the US death toll rising steadily, I started to focus on the life around me; the plants and creatures within my yard. The following represents photos all taken from my yard here in Williamsburg. Respectfully submitted, Michele Bingle-Graffius.”
