Allerton 2007

It's finally time for spring fieldtrips! Yeah! We had a lovely time at Allerton this week. Here we are in the Fu Dog Garden.



(Maya took this great picture of Teresa that captures well the fun she was having in the maze garden. We've always had trouble getting pictures of Teresa smiling because she smiles with her whole body so pictures of the phenomenon are generally blurry. Luckily I had it on the sports setting when I handed the camera to Maya. That first picture of Teresa smiling with the Fu dog was pretty lucky.)

I was so excited to find frittelaria growing among the daffodils. They are a special favorite of Billy and I because there was one growing at our first house. Plus, what other flower looks like a checkerboard? It's gotta be part lizard or something.

Inspecting pinecones

Oo! We also saw lots of fat tadpoles in the pond but they swam away too fast for me to take any pictures. We had an idyllic time and I felt so sneaky to get there before it's thick with mosquitoes. Hee hee.
