Deborah Goes to the Botanical Gardens

I got up early (for me, anyhow) this morning and went to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, which I consider to be something of a jewel in Alabama. I walked around for a little over an hour, pausing to sit on a rock or a swing, and thought about my life while I listened to the birds sing and insects chirp. It was cleansing to be in the fresh air and to immerse myself in nature, which is something I so rarely do. Above are some photos from my trek.
