Leaves and Flowers

Yesterday, I took out Autumn in Vermont, and started a leaf. (Woohoo, right?) In addition to going to Longwood with the girls, I had to prepare for Cookbook Club today, which I am co-leading, since our librarian has another program and start the book for tomorrow's Books and Brews book club. You all, I may have bitten off more than I can chew. (What's new, right?)
We wanted to see the Thousand Bloom Mum (1500 blooms on one plant--the largest outside Asia, thank you very much). The girls were more impressed with the pond. Of course. They had a lot of fun splashing in the watery bits of the conservatory (for children. On purpose, clearly). We also took in the trains because it was a nice day.

My title is inspired by Special K. She kept looking at her Fiji water bottle which had a flower on it, and my Desani which had a leaf. "My water has a flower. Your water has a leaf," she repeated over and over. Kids, man, not conversationalists. But they are freakin' adorable!

I guess that Mum is new since my time--my long-time memory has been on the jonquils/daffodils in the spring.

Also meant to comment on the size of the twins--they will be in college before we realize it!

They may not be conversationalists yet, but they sure are cute. What a gorgeous Mum! Nice start on the leaf!

Those girls are growing up fast! At least she didn't preface every sentence with your name. One of my son's classmates does that. Every single sentence. Have you any idea how wearing that becomes after a day out?
