This weekend, my husband ran a 5K race at an arboretum about 30 miles from home. My friend talked me into tagging along so we could take in the beauty of this gorgeous setting while the guys ran. It was definitely worth setting the alarm for 5:45!
As the runners took off, we left to go exploring. The sights were incredible!
You can see the early morning mist lingering in most of these photos.
I loved this old greenhouse…
and the beautiful statuary scattered around.
I was mesmerized by the beauty of it all.
I’m so glad I didn’t opt to stay home in bed and miss all of this! It reminded me of all that Mother Nature has to offer either in our own backyards or a few miles from home. And, all of this beautiful scenery was absolutely free.
I came home feeling refreshed, my spirits lifted. What an incredible gift! I hope you were able to spend some time outdoors enjoying yourselves too – digging in your garden, a walk around the neighborhood, a park, the beach. It’s all there for our pleasure.
Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks so much for stopping by.
