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.
I 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.
“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?
