Yesterday I went on a field trip by myself.
I went to Powell Gardens,
a 900 acre Botanical Gardens, about 30 minutes east of my house.
I went to do some research.
I went to be inspired.
I went at my own pace.
I spent my day around exquisite gardens.
I bought a field guide for Dragonflies in the gift shop.
I spent my day taking notes and pictures.
I looked at the books I bought while I had lunch in the cafe.
After six hours I was tired.
I was inspired.
I have more research trips to take.
