|Sundial at Cornwall Park Rose Garden|
It started raining on and off yesterday afternoon and kept it up most of the night. The overcast skies and rain kept the night from cooling off very much, until the clouds parted and the sun came up this morning, bright and beautiful. Lots of puddles as I walked to the bus, but there is no chance of any more rain, for awhile at least.
I asked John (who drives me to a trailhead on mornings I take the bus) to drop me off at what has become my favorite walk, through the Cornwall Rose Garden and then through the park itself. There is this sundial in the middle of the garden, a gift from a garden club, and I enjoyed looking at it. It was 8:45 DST, and you can see the sundial was spot on. I didn't notice it until I downloaded the picture, but there is a coin on the far side of the dial, a quarter I think. I'll have to check again tomorrow to see if it's still there.
|I did smell the roses, including this one|
It's always nice to stop and smell the roses, taking my time before setting out on the rest of the walk, just under three miles, to my front door. This rose was captured a couple of days earlier, but it is so beautiful in its perfection I had to share it with you today.
I've got two books going on my Kindle right now, one for daytime and a very soothing book about Buddhism meditation practice that I like to read before slipping into Dreamland. And to tell you the truth, any self-care that I am administering to myself is very much appreciated by those around me. Hubby is at the doctor's office right now getting the results from his latest blood test. Fingers crossed it will all go well.
