Willy-Nilly Friday 5

Willy-Nilly Friday 5
inspired by Norfolk Botanical Garden

1. The Fitbit fitness tracker keeps me motivated. I love getting out and walking–nice, long walks. It’s addictive! And such a beautiful time of year with all the flowers and gardens coming to life. Everything is so green!

2. I watched an odd-looking butterfly wend and wobble through the air across the path from flower bed to tree branch. Once it alit, I realized it was not one, but two, Monarchs. No privacy from the paparazzi.

3. There were azaleas:

4. Last fall, as I wandered through the various gardens, I tried to envision how it would look when all the rhododendron bloomed. The small screen of my mind couldn’t come close to the real-life experience. And the fragrance! Not over-powering, but a mild sweetness that I want to memorize until they bloom again next year.

Mounding higher than my head…
…ethereal beauties…
…to vibrant, lining both sides of the path.

5. And my favorite find…

…a bunny!

Thanks for coming along with me!
