Hot x 3

What was I thinking! Sure, there is time for a quick 30 – 40 minute visit to the arboretum before they close. Water, please… I will be quick. It won’t be that hot anyway. What was I thinking!

Yes, it was a quick visit but it sure was hot. I saw maybe five other people while I was out there. It seems it was even too hot for those searching for Pok√©mon. While I do love the arboretum, I have to remember this visit the next time I think to myself that I can get some photos during a “quick visit” in the middle of the hottest part of the day.

So I’m glad that there were some birds singing and flying around and some flowers soaking up the sun. Otherwise…
