What I'm saying is, the nice thing about staying home when everyone else goes on vacay, is that you get the best spots of the City to yourself. Which for us, meant a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
Not to mention that the rose garden was stunningly in full bloom. A riot of boisterous colors in every direction, as far as the eye could see.
And then, this morning, on the walk to work, the skies were gray and drizzly and - Mary Poppins-like, a changing wind was in the air. Fall might be here only temporarily, but I'm welcoming an end to this heat wave. Bring on the chunky knits and oversized cardigans and fluttery scarves! Here's to roasted root vegetables and pumpkin pie and apple crumbles! Three cheers for brisk autumn winds and bright scarlet and gold foliage!
See you next year, Summer.
