Merry Christmas

DSCN0251

Looks almost tropical, doesn't it?

Don't believe the hype. My parents are here - finally - their 3 days train journey across country took 5 days due to the snow and train derailments (not their own, thankfully). We went to Longwood Gardens on December 23rd, and spent our entire time inside the conservatory because it was 15'F / -9.5'C outside! I actually had to take off my jacket in the conservatory - it was nice to be that warm.

Why didn't you stop by our house?? We were waiting for you - we were home most of the day and had (and still have) your presents and cookies ready. We weren't expecting you to spend a lot of time but we still thought you would stop by to pick up your presents. I am disappointed! Also it looks like we were in DC on the same day!
