In the Middle with You" "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am..."

Lyrics, having little to no meaning personally, run through my head constantly these day! Why? I don't know. Maybe the clowns and jokers are the multitude of rude people outside my surroundings. And Elizabeth has me stuck...I can't seem to pick her up or just move on. What is it?

Am I spending too much time in the garden...tell me?
Stuck in the Middle or Running with Scissors?

A Plus Day...

Not only was the temperature a plus 80 degree day last Wednesday, it was a wonderful day to meander through the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. A 300-acre garden with several small themed gardens and an emphasis on natural preservation along with hiking trails.

Never having been a fan of water gardens, this could change my thinking.

Interesting sculpture, "Vitruvian Woman",made of earth and concrete.

It was difficult not to "pocket" some of these poppy seeds.

Having had horses as a child, this sculpture was a favorite. Not sure which made me smile more, the moon and horseshoes or the fact it was called "Bill".

No particular reason to look up while hiking the trails...other than a different angle of beauty.
Beautiful weather, lovely gardens, "hiking" friend and interesting sculptures...truly a Plus Day don't you think?
