After a quick lunch yesterday, I drove to the arboretum for a leisurely stroll in the sun. It's too early for many blooms, of course, but it was lovely, just the same.
A comfy swing soon drew me in, and before long, I was smiling at a young mother (with friend and photographer in tow) attempting to capture her baby girl's picture amongst the bushes and plants. If anything makes a mother act like a fool, it is her offspring. Each time the photographer zoomed in on the child, the mother and friend jumped, and clapped and yelled, "Yaaaaaay!" I recalled younger days, when I did the same thing.
Within a few weeks, blooms will explode, and I'll return with a good camera in hand. Until then, I snapped a few for the picture book with my iPhone.
