New friends at Brookside Gardens

Spent a beautiful summer afternoon at Brookside Gardens in Maryland. The park is free for anyone to enjoy and features natural habitats for various local critters and a formal rose garden. There’s a pretty Japanese Tea House (sans tea) and a fantastic butterfly pavilion.
