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, April 6th at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, PA.

The plan at this point for April 6 is Brookside Gardens. However if Cherry Blossoms are looking good – or the bluebells at Bull Run are blooming – location very well may change in the few days before the meetup.

Meetup starting time will be either 7 or 7:30 – depending on where we’re photographing. Chances are we’ll head out for coffee at a local Starbucks or Panera afterwards.

Once I’ve got a better idea what will be blooming where – I’ll announce details.
