Sunshine and Roses

The view from my bench this afternoon:

I am so glad the roses bloomed!

I walked down to the park to read, but I just could not.   I was so in love with the scent of roses  and warm sunshine on my skin.

I just sat quietly and absorbed the sensations instead.

To the Forest!

Close your eyes and imagine.

“An almost impenetrable primeval forest….”

I close my eyes and imagine what this land, from lake to lake, looked like in 1850.

This is a plaque embedded in the cement in front of a bench in Roanoke Park.

It is a tiny memorial to all the lost plants and trees.

Visit with a Heritage Tree

Today I met with a Heritage Tree in my neighborhood; a lovely European White Elm in Roanoke Park.

This tree is 101 years old.
