Here we are (from l. to r.): Daniela Hewson (chapter president), Susan Lyons (Kensington author), Tara Bisgrove, Meg Fraser, and Rachel Goldsworthy (chapter treasurer). I’m the one behind the camera.
Our potluck lunch ended up being salads and desserts, which everyone decided was pretty much perfect, especially accompanied by the four Cs—conversation, camaraderie, chilled white wine, and chocolate. We ate and sipped and chatted, periodically distracted by views of the garden and the strait, and the ravens and bald eagles soaring overhead.
Meg has a glorious back garden. Instead of lawn, there's a gorgeous array of shrubs and perennials, many of which were in bloom. A pathway winds through the garden and down the sloping back yard—perfect for a stroll and a close-up look at all the plants. It’s all surrounded by a deer- and rabbit-proof fence, thoughtfully constructed by the home’s previous owner.
An altogether wonderful day in a perfect setting. Many thanks to Meg for hosting us, and thanks to all for the friendship and fellowship.
Until next time,
