My husband and I made the long drive up to Maryland
A field trip, a Florida native plant hero and a pasta salad.
to visit with friends and family.
|I ended up with enough pesto to freeze several pints.||I harvested most of my first lettuce crop and other salad makings just before we left.|
But first Washington, DC.
|Fall in DC||Milkweed is ready to fly in DC's sidewalk gardens.|
|Asters! (Symphotrichum oblongifolium)||Asters and red ribbon grass (Panicum virgatum).|
At the end of the day we had put 12 miles on our bikes and had satisfied our DC deficit.
|My smart granddaughter Olivia. Behind my shoulder is a sketch of her mother and aunt when they were children.||My son Dana and grandson Weber.|
|I make a point when talking to Weber as dinner |
is declared ready for the group.
So we had a lovely dinner with traditional and vegan offerings. 20 friends and family made short order of everything.
We also spent time with my good friend Lucia Robson. It was so much fun to catch up.
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.
