Imagine yourself this Saturday, sipping a craft brew in the @1912biergarten at Heurich House. You couldn't ask for a more delightful spot.

Mayapple Soaps, @_blackisgold_  and @thefussygoose will be there for the #HeurichMiniMarkt. Shop a wide selection of local, handmade soaps, illustrations, and candles. Relax with friends in the shade on a cool summer day. This Saturday is only in the low 80s!

The shop is closed for summer break. I'll be back August 8th!

The image on this post was generated with AI. I was blown away this week when I discovered midjourney.com. You put in a prompt and images are generated in 60 seconds by AI. The prompt that generated image: Georgia O'Keeffe style woman with plants for hair.

Where is the world going with this? I have no idea. It's worth exploring the ethical questions: https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/23023538/ai-dalle-2-openai-bias-gpt-3-incentives

We decided not to make wine this year. Instead, its been fun to watch the birds pick the elderberry bushes clean. Today there was a flock of finches gorging themselves. I thought they wouldn’t be able to take flight after their long, leisurely meal.

Lavender Mint Goat Milk Soap is a popular soap in my shop, with many benefits for your skin. It's soothing to dry skin, and reduces inflammation. Goat milk soap is naturally high in lactic acid, which also helps relieve and diminish acne. Each bar is infused with lavender that was grown right in my Brookland backyard. Besides smelling great, lavender helps lower anxiety, and brings additional healing properties.

Come get a bar this Saturday at the Brookland Farmers Market 9-1PM, 716 Monroe Street NE, near the Brookland metro stop!

Happy solstice, and happy Juneteenth. The photos are from a hike we did yesterday in Maryland. We found ancient shark's teeth, a piece of a sting ray's tail, and curly fossilized poo at Douglas Point. After that, we discovered this whimsical plant called fairy wand growing in the Potomac River, and a somewhat irritated nesting osprey at Smallwood State Park.
