women’s march

Charlotte's women's march was a family affair  I was pleased that parents brought their children to the Women’s March today. This will be something the kids remember for the rest of their lives. I’ll remember it as well. The crowd was diverse in gender, race, culture religion, age, and cause … but today we were all women saying women’s rights are human rights.

Personally, I marched because president trump needs to told that the sexual assault, he bragged about, is reprehensible.

This photo was taken at 300 S Church St in Romare Bearden Park. Following is a website for the Women’s March on Charlotte.

Campbell’s Greenhouses


One of the highlights of our weekend was to shop for orchids Campbell’s Greenhouses in Dilworth near uptown Charlotte. Their orchids make me look I know what I’m doing. Actually the have a program where you return your orchid after the blooms have fallen and then a year later it is booming again. You pay once and then pay a small fee for them to care for your orchid.
