Inspired by Life: August 2018

I am very conscious that I sit a lot and so every Friday I try to go for a walk.  Instead of going to the wetlands this past week, I decided to go to Morikami Japanese Gardens and Museum.  I have a membership there and I should go more often but in summer it is really hot and humid, and this week was no different.

I am part of a group called the Color Chase Challenge and this particular month is purple.  While I wasn’t actively looking for purple, I managed to find quite a bit of it.  The gardens at Morikami are beautiful and if you have never visited and you get the opportunity I would encourage you to do so.

The colors are somewhat less as we move through summer towards Autumn.  However, I was pleasantly surprised how many flowers I did actually find.  So here are some of the beautiful sights I saw on my 2 mile walk.  Walking in these gardens definitely inspires me.

    • Thank you Tracy – the gardens are just that – Tranquil – you can find a spot to just sit and watch the world go by or walk through the beautiful pathways. The advantage of it being hot is that there are less people out.

  3. Sharleen, you always manage to capture the most fascinating images. I love seeing south Florida through your eyes. It’s such a different place than it is up here in northwest Florida.

    • Thank you Brandi – I am not sure if you are somewhat cooler up there but I could do with some cool weather down south. I love getting out and seeing what is around.
