My fiance' and I (known here as Gangreen) would like to get together with some members at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna. Right now there isnt a whole lot blooming but mid-June through August would be a good time.

Here in the Woodbridge Manassas area. Can make it to Vienna in about 40 minutes. Set a date and I'll see what I can do. I love gardens. Let's do it when it's not so hot, though.

Hi there Suzie! When I moved here from PA I lived in Dale City...man has it changed in those short few years :(. Maybe we could do a few times in the summer including August. I can set the date closer to that time but maybe we could do one in June, July & August in the early morning or later in the evening...thats usually when we go.

I'm in Manassas at the moment. Although I live in Wisconsin, my family lives here in NoVa. I'm posting to subscribe to this thread because I get here often enough to probably be able to swing over to any get-together you guys can produce. :D

It might be possible for me, but the schedule is a little tight through mid-June.

I'll stay tuned into this thread, and if I can make it I'll chime in.

Have Fun,


Rick

I live in tysons, so I'll see you guys there for sure. Sundays are better for me so I vote to go on the 10th.


I'll never let anyone make decisions regarding my life, career, dreams and aspirations, because if I do , I'll be only as good as the other person allows me to become!!!

MY BABIES: Rebel XTI, Canon EF-S 18-55mm, Canon EF 50mm 1.8, Canon EF 28-135 IS and approximately 3 more years to figure all of it out!!!:lol:
