Some steps need to be taken alone. It’s the only way to really figure out where you need to go and who you need to be.~ Mandy Hale
A picture is a poem without words~Horace
You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at the picture for a second and think of it all your life ~ Joan Miro
Inspired by Becca’s Nurturing Thursday
What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them ~
You have the ability to choose your reactions ~
It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack ~

These images are taken at the El Retiro park in Madrid during our recent visit. I would love to visit Madrid again and spend a day in this beautiful park.
El Retiro Park : Covering over 125 hectares and comprising more than 15,000 trees, El Retiro Park is a green oasis in the heart of the city. In it you’ll find all kinds of interesting monuments and gardens, including the Jardín de Vivaces, the Jardines de Cecilio Rodríguez (Andalusian-inspired classicistic gardens), the Jardines del Arquitecto Herrero Palacios, the Rosaleda rose garden and the Parterre Francés.
A note: When we came out of the metro station El Retiro, I wanted to take street shot, only to realize that I forgot to insert battery in the camera. Which was still in the charger at the hotel near Opera. 😦 😦 😦 One possibility was to explore the park and take pictures using our mobile phones but looking at my face, my husband suggested that we get back to hotel and bring the battery. Due to some maintenance work on the tracks between Sol and Opera it took almost an hour and half to get back to the same place.
