Mary was here in NY for a few days with Barb; we had lunch on Wednesday and had some nice time together. I won't say Mary is bad luck, but it rained the entire time she was here, only to get sunny approximately the time she left.
However, she was greeted on her return home with this gardenia gift in her garden. I love the smell of gardenias. It's an old-fashioned smell to me, and so fresh.
