So, we went last Saturday to Rochester to see my cousin, and while we were down there, the plan was to go & visit the Mayowood Gardens. Sounded like a good idea ... but you see, turns out they're called the Gardens because they USED TO BE gardens. Want to know what it looks like now?
Uh-huh. Sure, pretty place, would have been a lovely walk if we hadn't been told the wrong hours & come close to closing. We didn't have time to wander around - we wanted to see some flowers! Not to mention it was hot & sticky & down in the forrested area the mosquitoes were fierce. Finally we went back up to the house & got to see a few real gardens:
A little later in the evening, me & Mom left my grandparent's house just about 15 minutes too late & got hit super-hard on the way home. Blinding, torrential rain, unending buckets from the sky, and standing water deep enough that I'm extremly grateful I didn't actually get stuck. It eventually settled down, but even then, lightning continued to light up the night sky in awesome fashion. So I got out the camera & used up the rest of my batteries taking some video:
So yeah. Nature is awesome =)
Thanks for reading.
