An Oasis in the City

Yesterday, I took an hour out of my day to visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. What always strikes me when I'm there is how wonderful it feels to be surrounded by nature - and then I look up and see the skyline right nearby- it's like an oasis of beauty and serenity right in the heart of the city.

I don't know where you live, but chances are there is someplace like this near you. If you haven't been there for awhile ( or maybe ever) now's a great time to go. Enjoy the aliveness and energy of all the new spring plants popping up and give yourself the wonderful calming benefits that nature can provide.

And who knows you might find some inspiration for your next painting, decorating project or even come up with a new solution to a problem that's been bothering you by having a change of scenery and new view on things.


  1. Beautiful! Can we meet there to paint one day? Would love that!

  2. Oh my-I MUST get there before the tulips are gone! Thanks for posting.
