Fast forward to now, the first big rainy day of Spring was upon us and I was struggling to find a calming activity to take my mind off of school and then it hit me. Phipps was the perfect way to spend a rainy day in Pittsburgh! Being around all the flowers gave me back the energy that the pouring rain had taken out of me earlier in the day, and it was a great way to spend my afternoon. Here are some pictures from my day.
