Brookside Gardens!

Per members' request:

Come join us this week at the beautiful Brookside Gardens near Glenmont Metro Station in Silver Spring (Wheaton), MD.  We will be set up nearby the main Visitor's Center - down the hill behind the center, on some benches near the fountains.

Sketch or write - enjoy the beautiful outdoor weather and landscaping of one of the nicest parks in the D.C. area.  A wide variety of beautiful scenery is available, including fountains, stone walls, bridges, gazebos, ponds, and a Japanese Tea House.

Parking is generally plentiful (and free) and the park is Metro-accessible (half-mile walk or so).  After the park, we tend to head to a nearby restaurant for dinner.


Feel free to send me an email (likely the best option) via the website if you cannot find us in the park or call my GoogleVoice number:[masked]-1264.

    Sorry to cancel so late. Things are quite a mess at home and have to take care of that.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
