Instead of driving all the way to college today, I parked a mile away and walked the balance of the distance along the new Orange Line bike path. There are some pretty (and aromatic) plantings along that track.
Almost back at the car after class, I was (emotionally) struck by this eucalypt, bursting from its bark as it stretched towards the sun. Gum trees speak to my soul.
I'm on a roll with sewing now. Current project: a new top.
