 We had our Book Club picnic at the Volunteer Gardens in Mount Vernon. Madelyn lives near there and volunteers, so she was able to reserve the picnic pavilion, where we had a great pot luck spread!

 Lots of entertainment - it was a rare event with all of the members present, but also sad, as Madelyn is resigning after 25 years. She lives 1 1/2 hours away from the rest of us, so it is a long drive, especially during the dark months. We will miss her, but she might SKYPE with us, and hopefully will host future picnics!
 The garden had lots to see, including some great fruit tree espaliers,
and a tree frog in the carnivorous plants garden.
