On Wednesday, while the HVAC guys were busy banging away in the attic, I was struggling to maintain my sanity with little sleep and even less patience. Luckily, Peter had the day off work and suggested I get out of the house for a while. So I decided to go for a walk, something I haven't done much of lately since moving out of the city. It turned out to be the best idea ever. I muddied my shoes on a wooded trail for a while, happily snapping photos, then discovered the prettiest garden! I was so enamored of the beautiful day that I lost track of time. For probably the first time since buying this house, I wasn't worrying about repairs or money or anything. I was just floating in blissful color and warm sun.
Of course, before long my phone rang, and it was time to return to reality. But I'm so glad I discovered this little haven near my house. Now I know where to sneak off to the next time I get overstressed.
Hope you enjoyed this garden walk! xo, Mary
P.S. I also took photos on the wooded trail. I'll share those photos next time. :)
