Last year, I decided to treat myself to an annual membership at Longwood Gardens… I figured some flower therapy would be good for the soul. It was very uplifting to see the beauty that this world still holds and an escape from grief and sadness.
Well, I just renewed my membership… took kiddo and had an absolutely marvelous time today. There is snow everywhere and it makes barn chores more challenging. The snow is beautiful in it’s own way, but winter is stark and cold and a bit depressing at times. The visit today was so uplifting… the sights… the colors… the smells… I left feeling invigorated and refreshed.
I heard a commercial on the radio on Friday night for their OrKID Days and thought that kiddo might enjoy the activities. He had a blast and enjoyed making the craft.
He carried it around the whole time! (John, I promise I’m not sissifying your boy!)
On a more manly note, he did enjoy the snake & hissing cockroaches from the Brandywine Zoo.
It was nice and very therapeutic to escape from the cold, get some aroma, color, and flower therapy, and enjoy some great times with my boy!
