My mother said it best: today is a ten out of ten day. Crystal clear blue sky, perfect temperature. With all the rain, the garden is lush with lilies: yellow, butterscotch, salmon, orange and my favorite, sizzling red.
The only problem on a day like this is how do you take it in? Never mind saving it, how can you savor it? Maybe the only way to enjoy this day is to stay in the now, breathing in and out and counting the special moment as a blessing.
One of my blessings is having a small pond, filled with giant bullfrogs. Incredible the sounds they make. Back and forth across the pond, the deep humming sounds coming from these frogs sounds like some crazy symphony instruments warming up for the performance!
As day ends, light turns the maple leaves a brilliant green. The pond is bright and shimmery. No better place to be.
