DC Area Flower Safari
If you are in the DC area, I hope you will join me and other flower lovers at our DC Flower Safari Meetups. The next Meetup is scheduled for Saturday, September 29. The location will be announced by mid September as we are not sure what will be blooming at that time. I hope to see you there!
