Placeholder for Monday

While Adam worked at Hebrew school and on tech for his school's show, Paul and I spent most of Sunday in the Brandywine Valley with dementordelta, first at the Delaware Art Museum to see A Secret Book of Designs: The Burne-Jones Flower Book, Howard Pyle: American Master Rediscovered and Dana Pyle's Howard Pyle Miniatures, then to Longwood Gardens for lunch in the excellent cafeteria and to see the Orchid Extravaganza in the conservatory.

Then we came home to watch the Oscars, about which (unlike last year) I had no extremely strong opinions except that Octavia Spencer should win Supporting Actress and I was really hoping Viola Davis would win Best Actress (you win some, you lose some). I didn't think Billy Crystal was so much better than other hosts, but Colin Firth looked adorable, we love Christopher Plummer, and we didn't particularly covet anyone's dresses. Here is one photo from Longwood, more to come later in the week:
