A Country Luncheon

The start of the weekend summer party season is well underway, the invitations are pouring in. 
Memorial Day weekend started at Crow Hill, the country house of John Knott and John Fondas of Quadrille Fabrics. Then it was off to noted editor Larry Ashmeads place on the Hudson for drinks and to end the day in the hills at art expert Katharine Carters for a casual dinner and bonfire- what fun it was, and it's just the beginning.
