A Spring Day at the Office

We had a late spring rain last night with possibly more today.  A lovely thing for those of us who enjoy the rain and especially the flowers which could use a good drink at this time of year.

As is my ongoing quest to appreciate the every day things in life, I recently snapped photos of my walk into the office.  Actually, out of my car in the driveway and into the office. 

I'm the office manager for an investment firm that is housed in a sweet Tudor-style home which we've renovated into an office.  Coming from my background of working many, many years for huge corporations, this work environment has been a refreshing change.  It truly is delightful, I never feel like I'm going to "work."

The lovely Ms. Cecile Brunner in all her glory

Through the gate, my path to the office

Passing by the cottage-style garden along the way

A lovely, quiet place to wander through, particularly on a stressful day!

Where calla lillies abound

A number of beautiful David Austin roses have just been planted around the office so of course, I will be out there taking more photos! 

Have a good day wherever you are and whatever you do :-)
