Photos Selected for 2018 Gardeners of America Calender

It's rather nippy outside right now, but I am looking at photos of tulips indoors, as I just received notice that two of my spring photos will be included in the 2018 Gardeners of America calendar.   A pleasant start to the week!

2nd Place Best in Show Winner

As I sorted through emails yesterday afternoon after a morning working at Mount Vernon, I glanced through one from a gallery in Los Angeles where one of my photos is in a juried show.  The show is titled "Small Towns and Rural Places".   I had to take a second I realized that my photo was awarded the 2nd place Best in Show.  I am honored.

Metallurgy Day at St. Albans

A couple of weeks ago, we participated in the 4th annual Metallurgy Day, at St. Albans.  It's always a lot of fun and is our only demo where we are guaranteed to hear odes on metallurgy performed next to the coal fire....   It is also one of our few demos where the students are allowed to help Jeff forge.  This year, Jeff made an entire set of cooking implements, which will be taken on a journey to Alaska by one of the school's professors.
