woke up to pouring rain… figured I wasn’t going to get a walk in today…

couple of hours later the rain had stopped, the sun was out, and the temperature was in the 20s…

so I got dressed and headed to the Park…

had a wonderful time wandering through the Gardens


light and shadow brought out some lovely shots I think… I’m not crazy about peonies but these were lovely…


tiny drops of water on the irises… the blue really popped today…


a different type of peony, I think… with a visitor… coming every Friday is such a great gift because I see the changes that have taken place since the last visit…


the water lilies are already blooming… also got to see lots of dragonflies


back at the lily pond found five or six frogs sitting on lily pads…


today I spoke to every person who I passed… nice opportunity to speak out loud… some days I might not speak to another person for the entire day… interesting who spoke back and who didn’t… most people responded and often we would talk for a moment about the day or the beauty around us…


the lilacs were so fragrant I could smell them everywhere in the Gardens… nice…


gorgeous huge poppy… amazing how many plants have been replaced where the tulips had been… those gardeners work very hard… wish I had them to work in my garden…


last shot was of the Duck Pond, just before I crossed the bridge out of the Park…

decided to take the path along the lane and through Bruce Park… it was very warm and a bit humid so I thought there would be a bit more shade… there was certainly more mud… ground was rather wet…

on top of that I had worn my newest pair of sandals… was trying them out for next week’s Altanta trip… good thing I tested them because I had blisters when I arrived home… guess they won’t be going in the suitcase, lol…

delightful time…
