This weekend I went to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden with my parents who are visiting from Wisconsin. It was a gorgeous spring afternoon and all around us the flowers were breaking open. I bought a $26 frequent visitor pass which was like getting my own key to the garden. It’s mine now, I thought. I can come here as often as I want. We wandered through the Rose Garden which won’t be at it’s peak until June. Hovering like bees around buds we sniffed all the perfumes, and admired the exquisite colors. While sitting on a stone step I noticed a couple walking down the path. A young man gently held the arm of a young blindfolded woman, whispering into her ear as they walked. My father and I smiled together, and wished we had a camera so we could snap a shot of this sensuous blind date.
