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, June 2nd at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton MD

Tentative plan for Sunday June 2-  we’re heading back to Brookside Gardens – unless we come up with a better location before then. But in the meantime – getting the meetup on the calendar

No clue what will be in bloom – but I’m sure it will be wonderful.

We’ll meet at 7 AM in the parking lot by the Conservatory – photograph until 9:00 – and head to Panera on Connecticut Ave.
