Yesterday was a beautiful day, perfect to be outdoors. We decided to explore Bailey's Arboretum and discovered a refuge for enchanting owls and red-tailed hawks. One can sniff the air and sense anticipation of warmer days to come. Walking through winter gardens, seeing trellises, benches and gazebos is an invitation to come back when it is warm enough to sit and listen.
Returning home warm up with a cup of hot strawberry and black currant tea and a light sandwich. Cucumbers sliced thin layered with cream cheese on multi-grain bread is a perfect mid-afternoon snack.
