After the third person asked Danny if he was French (must have been the cap?) I took him to the store, bought him a balloon, and made him run around the park as I snapped photos.
He even trained it to stay while he went to
church school the toilet.
The new greenhouse addition opens this weekend.
We're fortunate to have such a glorious botanical garden here.
They don't mind if you bring a sketchbook and pencils. There's plenty of benches to sit and observe all the hard work of the gardeners and volunteers.
This makes it my third pair of culottes in as many days-I think that's a personal best.
1980's culottes-Goodwill (I have the identical pair in another colour)
1970's blouse-Salvation Army
Velvet Shrug-Thrift World
Tapestry bucket bag-Hand-Me-Ups
It really is a spectacular show, if you can get to Omaha (soon) to see it. In November, the poinsettia show opens-and that one is wonderful beyond words.
I've been watching this one grow since Danny was a baby. It was barely 6 Ft. high in 2004. We like to visit and check the progress against Danny's own growth.
That's not looking too bad for October in Nebraska. Not bad at all.
