Can’t Get Enough of Nature

May, 9, 2014

Strolling through a slough last Monday only increased my desire to go back. I don’t know what it is about me, but lately whenever I go for a walk it starts to rain…and then it starts to pour. Fortunately, I was already wearing my Hunter boots.

Nature A

This time I got soaked – as you can probably see from my hair – but I wasn’t about to retreat. You’ve all heard of Singing in the Rain. Well, I was Dancing in the Rain. The pics were taken after I got drenched.

Nature B

These charming remains were once a greenhouse. The man who built it grew rare plants and created a nursery in the slough. That was about a century ago. There was no chance that I would run into him, but just in case he might have been looking down on me, I was extra careful not to smash any flora while exploring and dancing;)

Nature C

Life is so jam-packed with meetings, deadlines, trips, parties, dinners, workout classes, and everything else scheduled down to the last minutia.

Nature D

They are all terrific, but sometimes I think it’s important to go out into nature without a watch and just absorb what Earth has to offer…without peeking at your phone to check the time:)

Nature E

My slough excursion outfit this go-around consisted of a Vince dip dye cashmere sweater in colors that remind me of white clouds in a blue sky, Free People denim shorts (similar), and pink Hunter boots.

Hope you all have a terrific weekend and “schedule” some relax time!
