Flower Mart, presented by the Washington National Cathedral All Hallows Guild for the 73rd year, finished its first day Friday with a bright setting sun shining against stormy clouds that passed over without pitch.
If you live in DC and didn’t attend the first day, then you should attend the second day, Saturday (May 5th 10 am – 5 pm).
Ten Reasons to Attend Flower Mart 2012

2. Free admission.
3. Many local vendors for snacks, gifts, plants and wares.
4. It a benefit for the Cathedral’s gardens and grounds.
