I walked around the still pretty bare Hortus Botanicus, the botanical garden of my university, this afternoon. I was a bit down, because it still felt like winter.
I started the day in a good way, the sun was shining, and although it was cold it smelled like Spring. Then during the morning, the sun disappeared and it started snowing again. Please, we all want the winter to go away!
So, even if the prospects were not good for the rest of the day, I went outside for my lunch walk and trotted around the garden. Slowly I let my thoughts go, opened up my awareness and started to see. I noticed little buds even though it was so cold. The red buds in the Japanese garden made me happy.
