No labor on lunes

Waiting for the Metra to whisk Mia, Tom and I to the Botanic Garden north of the Chi. We even packed a picnic! OMG...Ol' Cilantro, in all her steel glory, is not conducive to being lifted on and off and a train!

Tom discovered the Old Green Bay trail that you can ride all the way back to the city. Mia (rockin' the cute-chica-riding-a-bike-in-a-skirt-look) and I, as leisure riders vs. Tom's speedy ways, opted that ride for another day.

Bike love on the Metra ride home...we weren't the only ones who thought spending the day rollin' 'round the gorgeous gardens would be a fab idea!

Side notes...
Favorite flower of the day = Inverted Cactus Dahlia.
Favorite flower name = Egyptian Star Cluster.
Peggy McNamara's watercolor exhibit was exquisite.

cilantro probably needs to be relegated to shorter cafe run duties. you think you might need a road or cross bike like your old trek?

Pretty pictures! I plan to do the Botanic Garden ride from the city sometime this fall.

Conrad, a roadie or cross bike would be a safe bet, no doubt, for such a ride! Marina would come in handy is she were still around, true.

Dottie, that should be a gorgeous ride in the autumn!
