my friend's window boxes

my friend's window boxes contain lovely things to look at this time of year. she had asked me, knowing that i am on a botany kick with the teen this year, if i had any suggestions for what to put in her patio garden for the cooler months, and i said cabbages and ornamental kale.

lovely.

pohick bay

i sent steve and ander on an overnight camping trip last summer to pohick bay. they had a good enough time that i decided we would go together as a whole family - and invite a couple of friends and their families - for mother's day weekend.

best. idea. ever.
