The docent was brand new to the job - we were her first tour - and was obviously unpracticed. She brought along her notebook so that she could tell us the myths and legends that related to the naming of many of the plants. She was cheerful and generous with her time and thoughts ... and bug spray. There was an unfortunate amount of standing water and a large collection of mosquitoes bothering our ankles. It was a small bother, though, in comparison to the lovely plants and the neat stories we heard.
The afternoon was a nice breather. I dropped on my bed to call Achaosofkittens, thinking that I wouldn't really nap. Ha. Despite the crashing thunderstorm, the small teenage elephant rooming next to me, and the party on the next door patio, I passed right out. We spent the afternoon reading and knitting, had leftover homemade lasagna for dinner, and played Apples to Apples.
