The Secret Garden

Ingrid and I took advantage of the beautiful fall weather to take a stroll through Brookside Gardens this afternoon. This wonderful treasure is only 1/2 mile as the crow flies from our old house here in Silver Spring.

We were lucky enough to catch one of the final days of the Garden's annual Chrysanthemum Show. Some of these beauties were the size of large salad plates.

And some were not only huge, but looked like they belonged in a baroque painting.

 We even got a couple of nice pictures of each other.

It was a glorious way to spend an afternoon!

Hey, is that Rachel Carson? (I will try to keep my comments at eight words or less. I don't want to get on Stewart's s**t list.)
