Cut your own flowers, dine in the park, learn a little science. Your weekend best bets:

Somewhere between the 900 days of March and now, apparently we had a summer. Alas, Labor Day (aka the summer bookend) is upon us. If you aren’t making an exodus to the Carolina coast for some final summer sun and fun, there’s lots of sun and fun to be had here at home, too.
