People you meet 2

What is it about Fridays? I was walking to the National Museum of Art to get a brochure on the Cézanne in Provence exhibit they have there and I met a woman who was - literally - covered in leaves. Fronds. Holly. Ivy. All kinds of green stuff. Her name? Amelia Exotica. Yeah I know, sounds like something from a B & D bar. But she was actually here to lobby Congress as part of National Ivasive Weed Awareness Week. I am not making this up. I will post a photo her friend shot as soon as I get it. Apparently, invasive weeds are a problem. Who knew?
