We started with breakfast at the Eastside Bakeshop near McGee Creek and then headed out to see some flowers. Steve McLaughlin spent many years as a botany professor and he knows his stuff. His lectures are also much more entertaining than anything in the engineering field.
Now you get to see some of the flowers we had. I've labeled them. Hopefully I'll get a passing grade.
