flowers minus the allergies!

I didn’t really have a post planned (do I ever?), but since it’s been a sad last couple of days in New York, I thought that I’d share my happy flower pictures from my trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens this past weekend.

sorry, meg. no daisies.

wish there were daisies. There were lots of cherry blossoms and tulips and trees. tons and tons of trees. But alas, no daisies. I think next time I’ll do more research to see what’s in season, but you don’t care about that. I get it. Ok, no more talking.

We found the rose garden, which of course, was not in bloom. just my luck. It did have a perfect place to pose for pictures. I call this my “if i had the sweet sixteen i wanted, sweet sixteen” pose. Also known as the “if i get married before i’m 90, wedding” pose.


Then we walked over to the library and Grand Army Plaza. I used to pass them everyday when I went to school. I always wanted to get off the bus and wander around but I never did. Because I had papers to write and also, I’m lazy.

Then we went to a Vietnamese restaurant in Brooklyn Heights, where I had my first banh mi sandwich. I don’t know what took me so long. I’m trying to figure out how to have one at least once a day, everyday.

I’d like to say that when I got home I did more than read on the couch but I didn’t. Because again, I’m lazy.

I mentioned that it’s been a sad couple of days here in New York. So, in light of recent events, I just wanted to add this here.

thank you for doing a job that I could never do.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” (Matthew 5:9)

What’s your favorite flower? Have you experienced the magic that is banh mi?

Let’s discuss!
