Perfect refreshment

To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.
~Jane Austen~

Today, after a long day helping at school and plodding about after school, I took a half hour to sit on our lawn swing with our dog, Winnie and look upon verdure. The grass is green now, growing in tufts and all disheveled looking. Spring bulbs are out and lovely..tulips mostly....next will come hyacinths I think. This picture is from last Fall but it has the feeling that today brought. I love how a half hour in nature, in quiet, with a nice dog beside you does wonders for your weariness.

It really was refreshing....I recommend it!
