On the way home from school this morning, the sight of this cheery little field of flowers prompted me to park my car and take a walk.
My friend, Melissa, commented that it didn't even look like I was in Kuwait. It isn't actually a field. Just a little empty lot that someone obviously threw seeds in. But what a lovely sight it is.
The area is residential, with a mix of private homes and apartments.
It was a very gray day so the spots of color along the way were much appreciated.
I do love finding green spaces.
Doors with character.
Well kept properties.
And beautifully blooming bougainvillea taking over buildings.
Walking takes longer than any other known form of locomotion except crawling. Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed.
