I was horrified and appalled when going to a picnic dinner at the Botanic Gardens’ Summer Sounds concert series to find that literally thousands of other people had picked up the same idea.
The eucalypt lawn was positively teaming! Crowds (in which, it must be said, women with short cropped gray hair were over represented) dripped across the smaller lawns heading down the hill. (I should note that the women with the short cut gray hair were not dripping individually as far as I noticed)
I take my hat off to the friends of the Garden in building the event up to this size!
But perhaps it’s getting to the point where a door price should be charged to c0ntrol numbers?
