Slower start this morning after nice B & B brekkie. Caught local train out to Botanical Gardens (even though Russell got us off about 5 blocks early!! Not a lot of color in gardens this time of year but still very good. We checked out the Australian section as well. Lots of Australian Eucalyptus over here in general.
