So I planned a destination walk, my favorite go-to activity to perk up a ho-hum day. We chose the Bellevue Botanical Garden, where we could combine our love of gardening with some woodland trails and enough walking to last a couple of hours.
Here are some of the scenes we enjoyed on this sunny morning.
The Yao Garden was lush and green and peaceful.
The borders were full of late summer color and texture.
After two hours in this lovely garden I was content to go home and enjoy my own little bit of paradise.
