It was a guy "date" day for the hubs so while he was off watching the rangers game with the boys, I headed off to Barnes and Noble, took in some chapters from the book I'm reading, and chatted with a very good friend for an hour or so. Before it started to rain, I headed out to the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth to walk around and lightly hike. Yep, you read it me...hike! Laughable right? Maybe a few years ago, but I hiked around the gardens, took some great pictures and enjoyed myself. There was a wedding in the rose garden, so I cut my hike short since I couldn't hike down into the garden and sit among the amazing smelling flowers. I'm blown away at how my sense of smell is lately. I don't think I've ever enjoyed the outside more taking in the sun, the feeling of it on my skin, the smell of flowers, and enjoying myself. It is definitely a new feeling. Here are some pictures from my hike around the gardens.
Gorgeous flowers in the gardens and the smell was intoxicating!
Enjoying my hike. Note to self - must charge ipod the cell phone just doesn't do my tunes justice :-)
Gorgeous ponds surrounding the perennial gardens
My favorite picture of the day!
As close as I could get to the rose gardens. I will definitely be going back to see it more in bloom
