Ailsa’s travel theme at Where’s My Backpack? is plants. And it’s ironic how much I like plants, because I have the blackest thumb in the world and can kill any plant, at will. It’s not a talent I am glad to have. It’s just how it is.
So. Behold! The rhododendron tangle in front of the Clapp Library at Wellesley College. It. Is. Incredible.
If you ever wondered about the resilience of plants, let me introduce you to this fern, growing in the clay roof tile of the YMCA in Milton, PA.
This tree… It was such a grey day, as we drove through Maryland on our way to Myrtle Beach. Note: it’s not a black and white photo.
Closer to home, I was enticed down a particular street when I smelled the glorious scent of jasmine blooming in a side yard.
And finally. At Château de Chenonceau, the groundskeepers maintain a working 16th-century farm. And it is a feast for the eyes; easily, this is one of the prettiest places I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting.
That’s it for now. Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the travel themes…or play along. 🙂
