Philly Phridays #9: Morris Arboretum

Thank you very much for the well wishes last Phriday. Believe it or not, it still hurts.

In between the drinking and protesting and drinking and lobbying and drinking and drinking during next summer’s Adoptee Rights Demonstration, a good place to unwind will be at the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania.

It’s a full day visit, and we’ll be there at a really pretty time of year. I love visiting gardens. I love visiting gardens because I can’t have one. It’s not that I don’t have the property. I do. I just kill plants. It’s horrible. I mean well, but I can never get them out of the trunk and planted. I wind up finding them a week later dead. It’s terrible, really. I'm a serial killer of plants. I blame adoption. Genetics too. If you saw my mom’s porch, you’d understand. She’s not a plant gal either.

Anyway, they do have a lovely sample of fumaria bastardii ---- however, I was extremely disappointed to learn there is no bastardia anywhere in the gardens!

Talk about discrimination.

92 acres of gardens and trails. It’s very quiet there so it will probaby be a good hangover spot.

Have a good weekend!
