Bellevue Botanical Gardens, spring

Now and then it's good to pause in our own pursuit of happiness and just be happy.

Love the pictures, Dawn! Very peaceful! It is definitely my type of retreat. I think Jeremy and I could sit out there all day. Wait a minute... we already "spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner" in our own backyard. LOL

What a lovely post with such lovely sentiment. I needed this. It is so refreshing. I have been feeling a bit all over the place lately. I just need to sit back and enjoy more. Those pictures are just what I need. It looks like that garden could be my happy go to place. :)
Thank you!

I should have read this at the end of April. The words are true. The images of peace. My life has been like a quilt lately, made of all different shreds of fabrics, all torn from the whole, all sewn back together into a strange kind of order - beautiful, but definitely not whole cloth.
