green little review

Poem for Sunday and Brookside Gardens

Collapse )

It was a gorgeous, cool Saturday, so after a morning of chores and catch-up from the stuff that didn't get done while we were away Thursday, we had lunch and went to Brookside Gardens. The trees are more than a week behind where they were last year in terms of fall color, but that's fine with me -- I like my autumn to last past Thanksgiving! The chrysanthemums in the conservatory and gardens were only just starting to bloom, but there were lots of fall flowers, plus turtles and geese.

We stopped at Roots Market since we were already halfway there and got my favorite vegan steak bites, veggie cheese, and a local brand of butterbeer that's yummy. Then we came home and almost got to see Alice and Jeremy, first because we were going to make dinner plans and then because their car battery died, but they found a jump from someone else and by then they needed to get Avery home. So we had peanut soup and cheese for dinner, followed by a lovely evening watching Maryland beat Michigan State!
