I went for a run around 9:15 this morning. Perfect time of day…. not too hot yet, bit of a breeze.
As I ran, the sweet scent of gardenias brushed past my nose filling my lungs with deliciously scented air and my mind with spring-like thoughts. 6 squirrels perched on a brick wall near the gardenias and watched me as I passed. One leaped off the wall and darted in front of me, pacing me for a bit before heading back to the wall with his brothers and sisters.
Blooming hibiscuses brushed the top of my baseball cap.
White ibises waddled in the grass nearby.
And all around, the gorgeous smell of gardenias…. truly it was a beautiful morning.
Happy Mother’s day.
