A Garden Where I Don't Plant or Weed

This is my new favorite place to take Scout for a walk. What else can I say? It contains a rose garden, a peace garden, and a bird sanctuary. Here we can stop and smell the roses for awhile.

On Monday, on our first walk over here, we met a very young bicyclist who took time to pet Scout. I admired his bike, and said it was small: a good size. He informed me that, though small, the bike could go up to 30 miles per hour when he "really got cooking."

A cell phone wielding speed walker stopped long enough to say to Scout, "Hi Sweetie" before continuing her conversation. (I'm pretty sure she was talking to Scout.)

Early this morning we went back to the gardens and ran into the gardeners doing their secret work. A couple of young women were pulling weeds. What a wonderful job, to be able to work in the midst of such beauty, and peace.

Lovely. I wish there were a place like that in walking distance. I didn't think of such things when we decided to live in one of those subdivisions surrounded by highway. Of course, we didn't have a dog then. (Michael was sure he didn't want a dog until we retired. He changed his mind.)

I'm happy for you and Scout to have a place of such beauty.

What a great place to walk!

"gardeners doing their secret work." I like that.
