Botanical Garden’s Female Eagle Hit by Airplane

I was visiting family at the hospital this afternoon, and came home to find this news headline in my email.

I wrote a post earlier this year, and linked to the webcam where we’ve been keeping an eye on the eagle nest at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.

This day calls for hot soup in a bread bowl from Panera for dinner!

My mind is a bit muddled today, so I’m going to post the last of the pictures from our visit to Old Town.

This is the sign in front of the building.

This is the sign in the window of the entrance.

Don’t you feel better already? I know I did!

This door is on the opposite end of the building from the entrance, but I thought it had a lot of character.

Along the side of and behind the building were the healing gardens. Many of the plants used for medicinal purposes are still grown there. It is an English-type squared garden, with walkways throughout, and white picket fencing to protect the vegetation. There are signs identifying the plants, and describing their healing properties. We had a good laugh from some of those; especially when I found one that was good for earaches, of which my son-in-law was suffering. It would also take care of his “old ulcers, bloody flux,” and I don’t remember what else. I’m sure it would have cured whatever ailed him. 😉


This concludes our weekend tour. Thanks again for coming along with me.
