Getting some riding in

Really glad to get a day of riding in DC before settling into more sedentary week of panel service. Stopped by White House for a photo op. Borrowing a friend’s bike, and now I really want a new one…

Scenes from DC

Some scenes from DC and our visit to National Botanical Garden. There was an Orchid display that was breathtaking. The trusty new DMC-FC580 camera (and great carrying case) took some great shots and am so happy with it.

The wall prints reminded that that crops are important plants just like endangered cactus and beautiful orchids.

Citris is important! Rice is important!
We also went to The Phillips collection near Dupont Circle to see the Georgia O’Keeffe Abstractions exhibition but didn’t take any pictures of those. However, I did enjoy this painting Succession by Wassily KANDINSKY on display and of course the Van Gough and Renoir paintings on display.
