Have you ever been to the Botanical Garden? It's free for residents and cheap for non-residents, so if you haven't, get off your ass and check it out. Through July 24 you can listen to pianos at the Botanical Garden while you bask in the glory of the flowers.

Perfect Sunny day for #botanicalgardens watching the #gardenpiano performances earlier :-)
