A day in the garden
Admission was free, a rather big "woohoo" in my still unemployed state of affairs and I was also able to wonder through and explore a garden that once was, but was now, utterly bare. It felt invigorating in a way to simply walk around and experience this lack of bloom, this bareness, it was actually kind of cool now that I think of it.
The pond, slightly frozen over just at it's surface, the dryness of the trees without their proper green coats, and not a soul around. Couldn't have been a better day. It actually almost made me feel as though the garden was there simply with it's bare and grey open arms, ready to refuel my tank.
