The delight of the visual -- loving what you see

(Plus we managed to 
get some pansies today!)
In Toronto we are still allowed to walk our dogs. So this
morning I rushed out to meet my husband and our dog
Sally on their walk, and we managed to avoid other
people almost entirely.  It was a perfectly beautiful, cool
day.  The colder temperature is probably the reason that
fewer people than normal were out walking.

The clouds were gorgeous fluffy beauties moving across
a vivid blue sky.  Wow!  I was dazzled.  And I realized
that going for a walk, if you are able to, is such a treat.
Every shadow on the sidewalk, every blooming daffodil
in people's gardens, the buds slowly coming out on the
trees -- all of it cheered me up.  And I had been feeling a bit
overwhelmed.  So nature, as always, is magic.

Have a looking at nature day.
