It is gorgeous weather, y'all. GORGEOUS. I adore the fall - the blue skies, the crisp air. Ok, it wasn't crisp today, it was swelteringly hot, but the babies and I had a great day at the gardens nonetheless.
The rose garden is in full bloom right now. The plantings were redone/expanded a year or two ago and I've never seen the roses looking as good as they did today. I have to admit, I always thought it was a lame rose garden until now. The roses more than made up for it today, catching my attention with clouds of perfume wafting down to the nearby pond. I literally reversed course to go find the source of the scent. Xander didn't really care to sniff any buds, but Luke obliged me and checked out the flowers. He was also much more camera-ready than my own child today, so instead of close-ups of X you'll get L.
