They day after the trip I went to the botanical garden to finish off the film roll I started so I could have it developed. A month earlier would probably be a better time to see what this garden really has to offer, but I found it to be a tranquilizing antidote to the work that I do anyway. I can't help myself but wondering how the life of a gardener must be. I love the nature of the work, mostly being outside, in stead of the paperwork most of us do on our computers all day. What a joy it must be to see supervise growth. Gardeners must love what they do. How can you not, when you see how your effort slowly materializes into living things that spark the curiosity of others.
