On her first Thursday, a garden party was planned for students to celebrate 90 years of the program. Marina also began to feel sick. By the time I awoke and opened Facebook, I had several messages from her. She couldn't find tissues. What should she take? She had a runny nose, headache, and sore throat. She had already been to the pharmacy (chemist) and she couldn't find what she needed. I think she needed me, because she never actually asked someone in the chemist shop where she could find tissues and such. I gave her instructions and told her to ASK FOR HELP.

The garden party was twenties themed. Had they told her this before she left, she might have put together a better costume. As it was, she used what she had packed, picked up a peacock feather clip, and researched twenties hairdos. Here are today's ten:

Marina at the garden party at the Botanic Garden.
Having grown up visiting the New York Botanical Garden, she found the greenhouse rather small.
They had a jazz band.
A fountain in the center of the park, where she waited for a tour of the gardens.
She liked the shadow effects.

Marina knows I like to see the local wildlife. She had many pictures of the bumblebees and explained how they looked different from the ones we are used to.
A close-up of the fountain.

A beautiful quote on a bench.
A house built by a student who was instrumental in buying extra land for the garden.

The laboratories where studies are done on everything related to plants.

Oh no! I hope Marina wasn't sick for very long? As I know, nothing spoils a trip like a cold. Love, Linda

I love Marina's photos. The one of the shadows is great. What a gorgeous fountain - I could lose myself in dreaming sitting next to it. Love, Mom
