Witch Hazel



The reason I came to Philly this weekend as opposed to any other weekend is because I wanted to see the Witch Hazels in bloom at the Morris Arboretum. So today we went to the Arboretum and it was amazing. We all took SO MANY pictures. Seriously, it was kind of ridiculous, but a lot of fun. I want to come back in the Spring and take pictures of the cherry blossoms. The Witch Hazels were everything Andrew and Chad said they would be and more. And making our stroll through the winter gardens even more enjoyable was Harry, an amiable cat who followed us around the entire time. He was such a cutie and made me miss my kitty babies.

Afterwards we came home and Chad and Andrew made an amazing meal. Andrew's parents, his sister, and her husband, Matt, joined us for dinner. It was hilarious and a great time. I want them to adopt me! It's about 2am now and I'm about ready to head to bed, but before I drifted off to sleepy land, I managed to post all the pictures I took today to my Flickr page. Check them out-- they range from pretty nature photos to hilarity at dinner this evening.

Funny, 'Witch Hazel' looks ALOT like strands of chili pepper! Are you sure you weren't at the Mexican Buffett forest in Philly? At this buffett, tacos hang from the bushes and cilantro drops from the highest of boughs...

Haha. I sort of thought they looked like strands of lemon rinds.

Ah, Harry the arboretum kitty! I just ran into him today when going out there with my family. My brother said 'there's an animal over there' and we saw his back end sticking out of a bush behind the greenhouses, where he'd been sleeping. He's a really sweet mostly-solid-grey cat who was more interested in snoozing on my lap while being skritched or on the sun-warmed path than following me around though. I wish I had a cat like that.
