“Plant carrots in January and you’ll never have to eat carrots.”

Today I went on an excursion to the Botanic Gardens. Think public gardens but way bigger and fancier. Having an extensive background in Floriculture (a well kept secret that I’ve only just started admitting in public), I thought the gardens would be an exciting, well interesting, place to visit.

I decided yesterday that I would be making this trek today. Of course, me not being much into the planning meant that I didn’t bother to check the weather forecast. I also didn’t bother to look out the window before I left the flat. I mean, c’mon who does that? Prepare for the weather? Psh! Turns out I should have. It misted the entire time I was out and on the way back it started to rain. By the time I got back to the flat, my pants were wet all the way up to my knees. But was a little rain going to stop me? Not once I had it in my head that today was the day I was going to go to the gardens.
