color my world.
It happened. Today was that day that marks the beginning of the next season in our minds. Today went above 80 degrees. Today we went to a local botanical garden and everything was SO MUCH.
We visit the gardens often, but today was amazing with so much in bloom, brightly colored, and almost fluorescent in its freshness. Intense colors, fragrance, textures, movement, life. Turtles, birds, ducklings, crabapple petals fluttering onto our heads, and flowering something every step of the way.
The colors, after a long winter and drab early spring, were so intense it was almost too much! A total assault of the senses.
We made it to this hot pink poofball flower and we all actually laughed out loud together at how monstrously amazing it was that a flower could be SO bright and fluffy and humongous. It was almost ridiculous! It was almost as big as G's head!
As we wandered through a flowering wonderland A said, "Everything looks like sorbet, even the trees!"
And G, right behind him shrieked "NO, GELATO!". :)
A wondrous day.
