Today was a slower day. It rained a lot, and my tendonitis wrist was hurting me, so they gave me light (read: slightly boring) duties. I helped Kat snip back ivy the entire length of the acacia passage on both sides, which can be pretty painful on your knees after a while. I removed oxalis (death to oxalis!!!) from the Orangery after lunch, deadheaded, and did whatever I could to pass the time. It was so mellow and rainy.
After work I went with Ali, Hudson, and Olivia to Philly Chinatown for wonton noodle soup and peking duck with choy. It was so good. We found a bubble tea place in Little Saigon for dessert, then returned to Longwood.
