Biking Mount Vernon to Gravelly Point & back

Ate our sandwiches at the foot of the National Airport runway, with the 14th Street Bridge, Jefferson Memorial, and Washington Monument behind us (but somehow failed to get a plane taking off into the frame).

Made in Scotland

The red cast iron phone booth outside the Stafford, Virginia, county admin building celebrates the Stafford-to-Stafford friendship, but it was actually a product of Scotland.

Running past the weeds

On a morning run at Willowmere Park I passed a stunning display of thistles. I walked back for a closer look and found more to see than just weeds. The hummingbird moth was a bonus but the bindweed so entranced me I failed to focus on the last of the pokeweed berries, although they’re a favorite sight for me since Harold S told me about them. Don’t know what the puffballs are.
