Laissez les bon temp rouler

I hold a special place in my heart for the people of New Orleans and the south coast … a beautiful locale filled with warmth, ease, hospitality and a most unique history.  My family had a fantastic vacation in New Orleans one August before Katrina… yes it was hot but the food, drink, atmosphere, and history made up for the steamy weather.  I haven’t had the pleasure of returning, but try to stay abreast (ahem … no intended reference to risqué Mardi Gras celebrations) of developments there via the web.


As you would expect, New Orleans Botanical Garden, was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, but the gardens have made a remarkable comeback.  Take a break from the New England cold and tour the gardens, before and after Katrina, here, and marvel at the regenerative power of gardens.  I, for one, will raise a glass and enjoy some shrimp tonight in honor of our neighbors to the south … laissez les bon temp rouler!


24 days till spring!
