Hair at the Herb Garden

The BBG is building a new herb garden, and one evening this week I saw a small bar table set up just outside of it.

Not long afterward I saw several clusters of people, possibly donors, traversing the path that led from the table, champagne flutes in hand.

They looked lively and spry, and almost all of them had gray hair. Such a concentration of natural hair color is a rare sighting nowadays.

Of the half dozen or so women I saw, not a one had gone blond.

As I’ve previously reported, B. once commented that she enjoyed watching her plants go through the life cycle.

Maybe the people who love the garden enough to get champagne feel that way about themselves, too.
