My son came home from school last week with a notification about a field trip to the botanical gardens, and I jumped at the teacher’s request for chaperone volunteers. My eagerness was partially due to the fact that we’re at a new school this year and I’m trying to meet people, but in the interest of full disclosure, I must admit to an additional motive. Looking around my house, I can’t help but notice that there’s a current deficiency in the lush and leafy department. Let me show you the situation:

So today's the day: I'm off to explore the world of healthy plant life. I’m not entirely sure how simply visiting the botanical gardens will help shore up foliage efforts here at the home front, but my current plan is to soak in what I can through osmosis.
