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 Sunday, January 27th at my house in Bethesda,MD. This will be a casual get together from 2-5pm. If you’ve got some favorite flower or garden photos you’ve taken – please bring no more than 5  and a snack to share with everyone.  I hope to see you there!
