Subhash Sharma  "Also known as Blanket flower this Gaillardia belongs to a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family, Asteraceae, native to North and South America. It was named after an M. Gaillard de Charentonneau, an 18th-century French magistrate who was a patron of botany. The common name may refer to the resemblance of the inflorescence to the brightly patterned blankets made by Native Americans, or to the ability of wild taxa to blanket the ground with colonies. Many cultivars have been bred for ornamental use."

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend who lives in Ireland. He frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.

County Executive Marc Elrich, Council Are Sworn In To Office

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) 7 months ago

Montgomery County has a new county executive and council.

Marc Elrich, along with the county's all-Democratic council, were sworn in to office Monday morning in Bethesda. Hundreds of residents and officials filed into the Music Center at Strathmore for the ceremony, which started at 11 a.m.

Elrich, who served on the county council for three terms, was elected county executive after winning nearly two-thirds of the vote. He defeated Democrat-turned-independent Nancy Floreen, a former council member, and Republican Robin Ficker in the highly contentious race. Elrich is replacing Democrat Ike Leggett, who is retiring due to term limits.

 

Incumbent councilmembers Hans Riemer, the current council president, Nancy Navarro, the council's vice president, Tom Hucker, Craig Rice, and Sidney Katz were joined by at-large councilmembers-elect Evan Glass, Will Jawando, and Gabe Albornoz, and District 1 councilmember-elect Andrew Friedson at the ceremony Monday.
