Yesterday, my friends and I decided to take a brief study break before lunch with a stroll through Jackson’s Garden. While there weren’t as many flowers around for smelling as there might be in the spring, we nonetheless were able to satisfy our scented cravings in a more unique way; we discovered that the garden is home to a surprising patch of interestingly scented geraniums. With scents (I might prefer flavors…) ranging from lemon to coconut to almond to ocean breeze, the unsuspecting plants have a scent for everyone! Even though Jackson’s Garden might be the oldest cultivated garden on any American college campus, its geranium collection just goes to show you that an old garden can learn new tricks.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
