I talked to J.-PA online until 12:30 a.m., then started reading a book about the Johnstown flood.  I tried to go to sleep at 2:45 a.m., and that didn't work.  I think I eventually went to sleep at 5:00 a.m.  I got up at 11:40 a.m., which wasn't too good, but I'd probably gotten seven hours of sleep or so.

Mom, S.M. and I are going to Longwood Gardens.

There was a rabbit on the front porch.  That's the second time in about a week.  I got my bay and patchouli, and put them on the table on the front porch.

Later: we went to Longwood Gardens.  Much of the Hillside Garden and the area around the upper parts of the waterfall was blocked off.  I'm not sure why the Hillside Garden was blocked off.  S.M. and I walked along the perennial border.  Where the roses used to be in the Idea Garden area was now a testing spot for various plants, including cannas.  We looked at the annuals in the squares where the daffodils and tulips are earlier in the season, in the area below where the fruit trees and vegetable garden are.

Mom went with us to look at the Flower Garden Walk.  It was kind of between things.  The tulips must have finished blooming a couple of weeks ago, and some of the next things weren't blooming yet.  There were some lantana and marigolds that were blooming.

We saw the Fireworks and Fountains show.  It was Broadway and Big Band.  Mom and S.M. knew the songs.  I liked the fountains and fireworks part.  Some of the songs sounded familiar to me.  It took a very long time to get back to the parking lot and out of the parking lot because of the thousands of people in attendance.

I enjoyed the day.
