I took a visit to the Botanical Gardens this morning to see what's in bloom.
It's not what I had planned for today, but Simon suggested it, since it was a cool morning, and the thought of getting out of the studio for an hour sounded good, so I went.
I'm finding that it helps me be more productive to get out of my head a bit during the day. A change of scenery is nice, but sometimes it can just be to admire a new flower in the garden, or remind myself to be grateful for where I am at a particular moment.
I guess you could call this being mindful.
The gardens were gorgeous this morning, and I don't think I ever would have gone if not for Simon's suggestion.
So here's a reminder to stop and smell the roses. :)
Have a great weekend!
