we had a tour of the park and then we got down to business removing invasive plants from the area and pruning dead branches off of trees. it was like a makeover! for nature!
and my work friend had about the same ambitions as myself so magically the afternoon was spent making flower crowns, while appreciating the awesomeness of what was going on around us of course. and it was sunny and then it was cloudy and then it rained the kind of rain you can almost stand between and not get wet and then it was sunny again and i really felt like i was camping and or on a day camp field trip.
there's a giant vegetable farm there and the guy who ran it was named sunny and he gave us all vegetables and told us he loves our company and we told him we loved him too and we all sang kumbaya.
aw i love you outdoors.
(and special thanks to new job for bringing me to you on a work day.)
