  1. Katie: I just love your photography and gift of words. Yet again another beautiful blog. Rose

    • Thanks, Rose! You’re way too kind 🙂 Must hear about your summer adventure soon.

    • So beautiful. I’ve never visited Mt. Vernon. Now, I want to go there.

      • I’ve taken lots of visitors and still love going. The grounds are lovely and feel a million miles away from the craziness of the city. 🙂
