mini escape

last weekend, hubby and i were at the chicago botanic garden. a spur of the moment nature escape on such a beautiful day in spring. we just strolled around, soaked in the beauty and serenity of it all. the lake so peaceful, trees majestic, the leaves dancing with the breeze and flowers all gorgeous we took time to admire snapping a few photographs in between.  we ambled in the japanese garden, rested in cozy benches and enjoyed the thundering sound of the waterfall pounding the rocks, so therapeutic.  it was a glorious day! we drove away relaxed and refreshed.
