Now I know why we had such a long, cold winter - so that we can really appreciate it when the warmer weather comes along. The last few days have been lovely mash'Allah - bright sun, blue skies, a fresh breeze and everything starting to blossom.
I thought this weekend was perfect for taking the kids to the park, so that is what we did.
I love how blue the sky was and how all the pink blossoms on the trees look so pretty against it. If there is one thing that nature does well it is perfect colour contrasts (think red roses with glossy green leaves or fields of lavender against blue skies).
The daffodils have finally starting appearing, this usually starts happening around February here, but I think they were waiting for the snowy weather to depart. This wave of daffodils reminded me of the yellow brick road from the Wizard of Oz.
We found a corner of the park that we had not explored and found that some formal gardens were being planted. These were walled off into sections which led into each other. It was fun to see what was through each arch.
Alhamdullilah, I always avoid going to the park and try to get hubby to take the kids instead so that I can catch up on housework and rest, but whenever I do go I'm so glad I did. There's something about, greenery, nature, great big trees, sunshine and blue skies which is like medicine to me.
