garden in the woods

July 6, 2009

happy monday! i had a great weekend, and i’m actually having a great monday thanks to some furry visitors.

yesterday afternoon, tommy, his sister, and i took a nice walk in the garden in the woods.


this “living museum” has more than 1,000 native plants. honestly, most of them look the same to me…i mean…a fern…is a fern. haha πŸ™‚ but i still love this place. it’s so lush and pretty πŸ™‚



see the cute lil’ turtles?


the baby turtle was stuck on the little knob! his feet couldn’t touch the branch and the poor thing was all freaking out cus he was moving them around and getting nowhere. mama turtle came to the rescue by (slowly) climbing up the branch and nudging him off. he did a little flippy into the water and joined his siblings. yay!

there were also froggies, which i didn’t find quite as cute πŸ˜›


here’s me:


and tommy:


and more green stuff:



pitcher plants:


prickly pear:


and a cookie from the gift shop. they had a few vegan treats but i wasn’t hungry so i just snapped a pic instead. haha.


don’t they sound good? i did a little googleing and found the recipe for them as well as other healthy dishes from debra’s natural gourmet which i found is a store in massachusets. i love discovering local businesses like that, and i hope i get a chance to stop by their store soon.

anyway…sorry for the long tangent. here’s the food i ate on sunday…

breakfast was a fruit salad of pineapple, blackberries and grapes.


for lunch, i had a peanut butter and jelly before heading out to the garden in the woods.

tommy is super picky about the “healthy” bread i buy…he gets freaked out whenever he sees any kind of seeds/nuts/oats on or in the bread…but for some reason he really likes this nature’s pride healthy multi-grain bread. i like it, it’s hearty and tastes good, but i’m not really sure what difference he tastes between this and arnold’s multi-grain! odd, but i’m not complaining…


for lunch we went into cambridge and had an early dinner at tavern in the square, in central square.


i had the sesame salmon salad with the soy honey dijon dressing on the side. (those are rice noodles on top)


since dinner was so early, i had another pb & jelly sandwich later on in the night.


and that’s what i ate on sunday πŸ™‚ i have a monday to get back to now…see you again later!

    Lily pads look so cool, I don’t see those that often around here. Awww, and the turtles do look adorable! Hehe, you look adorable with the Asian Peace Sign :D. Yeah, a lot of people I know just hate anything but white bread! I just love the grainy, hearty stuff! Salmon salad looks yummy! Hope you have a fab Monday, Sue!

    I took so many notes from this post! I have to check out that park, and that organic store… and tavern on the square! Sounds like a lovely Sunday. The weather definitely made everything extra awesome, didn’t it? πŸ™‚
