The sun was out this morning and I knew it wouldn't last long. So, "quick kids! Everyone in the car! We're going to the park!" It's a dream of mine to be able to say "quick kids, go play outside!" but since we live in the middle of the city on a quarter of an acre (and a quarter of that is on an unusable slope!), our outside time usually means a drive to a city park where the kids can run, explore and see the vivid signs of spring in bloom.
So today we visited the Rose Garden at Tacoma's Point Defiance Park.
(We really didn't come to the Rose Garden to see roses though, after all it isn't rose season yet! Yes, I just recently learned that and yes, I was and still am horticulturally challenged. I remember telling a dear forgiving friend in May how she needs to take better care of her daffodils, they're all dead!)
We did come to the Rose Garden in April to see the spectacular display of daffodils and tulips, though. Oh how lovely they were. Please enjoy them! And if you can imagine, think of a pretty robin chirping a lovely little tune for you.
Too soon, it started to rain and my camera had to get tucked away in my raincoat. Can you see the raindrops? Oh, the wetness! Why am I not surprised? April plus Seattle-land equals rain. But at least we made it out here and the soul was well, very well.
Have a joyous day!
