Paul Neyron rose 2


I conked out around 1:00 a.m., I think.  I got up a little before 11:00 a.m.  I could have done better there.

Mom is debating whether she wants to go to tonight's illuminated fountain show at Longwood Gardens.

Much later: Mom and Dad and I went to Longwood Gardens.  We got there around 5:00 p.m.  I used my complimentary tickets for them.  We looked at the formal rose garden.  Mom got up to the conservatory and said she wasn't going to walk any more.  She sat outside. She had been anxious to get to this illuminated fountain and music show because it was the day before the Chrysanthemum Festival officially started.  However, they'd gotten an early start with the chrysanthemums, so Mom only ducked into the conservatories part to go to the downstairs ladies' room.  I took a look at the waterlilies at dusk.  The day-flowering ones were closing and the night-flowering ones hadn't really opened yet, for the most part.

Dad and I went back out to the car to get our food.  Dad ate in the car.  I took a camp chair and went back in.  I rented a wheelchair for Mom on the way back through the Visitors' Center.  Dad brought another camp chair in.  Mom sat in the wheelchair.

I hadn't expected to like the music, but it wasn't bad.  Mom and Dad are apparently fond of Aaron Copeland.  The lights matched really well with the music and were very beautiful.
