365: Garden Meditation Day

May 3 is Garden Meditation Day. It is a day dedicated to meditating in peaceful gardens. The weather wasn't great today, so Jude, HahHah, and I visited the Krohn Conservatory for a little garden meditation.
We started by sitting near the waterfall for a little bit. Jude isn't one for meditation, so he cruised around the edging looking at plants and watching the waterfall while HahHah and I did some breathing exercises. The sounds of the waterfall as well as being surrounded by plants helped calm all of us.
While we were there, we also got to see the Butterfly Show. I am a little afraid of things that fly, but I am trying to be better so Jude can appreciate the beauty of nature. Jude was just in love with the butterflies zipping around. We gave him time to crawl around a little and explore the nature and butterflies.
Spending time out in nature was a meditative experience in itself. We will definitely be spending more time soaking in the greenery around Cincinnati this summer!
