The Jesus and Mary Chain:
My neighbor and I went to Bartram’s Gardens for their annual Greens Sale today.
I love the place; when I was a kid, this is where we used to hold our family picnics. John Bartram was America’s first botanist and a good friend of Benjamin Franklin’s. (Franklin once brought the Continental Congress here to distract them and break a deadlock.)
Anyway, I now have a beautiful assortment of greens. And since I’m greatly allergic to them, they will soon be festooning the front of my house.
