I know I’ve been out of touch for a while. I let myself get overwhelmed and burned out by too many things going on in my life. So I’ve been stopping to cherish the moment. I would like to share with you some of my Sunday.
Cee and I went up to a favorite place, Hughes Water Garden, in Tualatin, Oregon, USA. I like to tell you where we are, just in case you’ve been nearby. It’s fun to share memories. Hughes has a large collection of water lilies and lotuses. Their gardens are scenic, imaginative and just downright beautiful. Their water fountains and ponds are decorated in ways that spark your imagination.
After roaming through the hot houses, I went to my favorite bench. It was cool and overcast, a perfect place to sit and ruminate after the steaminess of the hot houses. Here is the bench I used, to the right of center and a little up from the mid line, to the left of the blooming dogwood tree, underneath the weeping willow:
Can’t see it? Wait. Let me zoom in a little. Is this better?
Sit with me for a moment and relax. Look at the reflections of the reeds and grasses in the calmness of the water.
Look up and take in the whole panorama. Beautiful, isn’t it? So peaceful.
The waterlilies were sleeping in today. It’s been cool and rainy the last week, but by next week when the sun is in its full summer glory, they will be spectacular. I had to peep between the grasses and ferns to see them hiding.
