A Favorite Place

Planting Fields Arboretum - State Historic Park.  Oyster Bay, NY.   

On a bright, warm day at the end of March, we decided, kind of spur of the moment, to jump in the car, and take a drive to the arboretum.   I realized it had been six years since we'd last been there.   Six years.   We used to go so often.   There have been changes - a new visitor/information center was made in the Hay Barn.  There is an actual place to buy food, and beverages.   We used to pack lunches, and take coins for the vending machine.  

It was a great day, a day that I think we all needed.  A day away from TV, and the computer.  Though - there were still iPhones to look at, and texting done.   But, it was in the fresh air, and we were together.
