Clover was sick with high fevers for a few days. When she finally felt better I suggested a little walk to the ice cream shop. It was a little rainy but we dressed warm and stayed pretty dry. Afterwards we walked across to the gardens to get some more fresh air and see pink flowers.
Some days I am present, I notice every little thing around me. When I happen to be at the garden on those days I see wonderful things. A moth resting on a cluster of flowers. Some bees stopping to pick up nectar and pollen on a bunch of other blooms nearby. Monarchs butterflies chasing each other over our heads.
I had gotten lost starring into the pond covered in clovers when I looked up and saw that maiki had arrived. He motioned for me to come over to where he was. “I found something you need to see,” he told me. I was overjoyed to see the big, fat frog at the edge of the pond. It was a great day to be aware of the beauty all around.
Already today we saw a chicken, a lizard, a ladybug and a humming bird. We never know what treasures we will find in the gardens. #lakemerritt
