Yesterday, after several (many!) weeks of hard work and other stresses, we took a day of rest: a yoga retreat with Victoria Russell Bell and a small group at Casa de Flores – which reminded me in spirit of one of my favorite places on the planet, Spankyville.
We practiced yoga out under a clump of redwood trees, where it was refreshing just to stare up into the soft green fronds, stretching far above us. And we had time to explore the garden, a lovely jumble of colors, scents, and textures. So (of course) I took lots of pictures of flowers.
Thanks to Vickie, Teresa, and Joe for a lovely day!
