Tyler called me mid-morning and strongly suggested
that I take the kids on a walk
because it was so beautiful out.
It is not overly, shall we say - refreshing - to walk with lots of children
circling around me on their bikes
so I wasn't terribly keen to take him up on his suggestion.
he usually knows what is best for me,
so after about an hour
I gave in.
I sent him the first two photos as we set off.
(Then I realized Jack was with us, and we had to bring him back home.)
The sun was shining.
It was warm,
but not hot.
There was a slight breeze.
The unmistakable scent of honeysuckles filled the air.
They are more fragrant this year than usual, I think.
Even the privet smelled lovely.
(I don't recall the privet blossoms smelling nice.
Have I forgotten?
Or have I never smelled them?
That doesn't seem likely - I sniff everything.
Even the dandelions were pretty.
It's good that I listen to my man.
(Thanks, Love, for making me take a walk.)
