Yesterday's weather was stunning. Low humidity, a cloudless blue sky and the temperature was a cool 80 degrees. So I took myself to the arboretum and drove right into the side service gate. After I parked and walked up to my favourite picnic spot, it occurred to me that the park was unpeopled, empty for such a lovely day. Then I remembered that the grounds are closed Mondays. Not wanting to get locked behind a chained gate as the hour was approaching 5, I found a gent on a lawn tractor who assured me I had time to drive out. I'm going back today, I hope.
