Before Lillian and I set out to mark our 11th anniversary, two days late, I shot these images. The first shows the splendid growth of a unique exchange of a plant from a contractor to customer for our courtesy. The cava now is almost as tall as the shy hibiscus, putting out more blossoms now after a winter spent hiding from the cold in my basement office.
We marked the anniversary at the restaurant where we first celebrated the wedding — Bazin’s in Vienna, Va.
A wonderful day in 2021 — even if not exactly on the date.
