After work today I was filled with wanderlust. Since I had my camera with me, I headed out to the gardens area in back of Clackamas Community College to take a peek at what might be growing.  It was a little too late to head on out anywhere else. Slowly but surely, plants are growing, blossoming, and seeking the long-awaited sunshine. 
On some plants, buds are forming.  I can hardly wait to see them fully opened! What will they look like? What color will they be?  I did see some flowers blooming and they were vividly colorful.  I loved seeing the jeweling of rain on many plants!

I get so excited by the gentle beauty.

When I feel down or harried or just like life is too busy, a little visit in the outdoors is the best medicine.

Such lovely color and contrast!
Amazing texture!

How pretty! Some were so delicate and almost like blooming butterflies!
Colors leapt out from the green!
"Look at me!"

I loved how this plants leaves looked like velvet and was so alluring to touch!

I am in awe of the beauty and wonder that God provided for our enjoyment.
It helps me go home feeling refreshed!
Open your eyes and witness it all.
