Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days
Washington states. This beauty from Michigan is silky and lithe, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blackberries, with just a hint of caraway spice (my identifier for the grape, this note can be overpowering if the grapes were underripe). If I can find more, it will be on my Thanksgiving table. ABV: 13 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue). Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore. Available in Virginia at City Vino in Fredericksburg, Department of Beer and Wine in Alexandria, In Vino Veritas in Keswick, Unwined (Alexandria, Belleview).
Left Foot Charley Old Orchard Vineyard Kerner 2016
Leelanau Peninsula, Mich., $20
Kerner is an obscure grape that resembles gruner veltliner, but perhaps with a little more body. I've had a few from northern Italy, and David Ramey makes a California kerner for his Sidebar label. This example from Michigan's Leelanau Peninsula grew on me, its flavors and aromas of white flowers, ripe peaches and apricots expanding as the wine shrugged off the refrigerator's chill. New to the Washington-area market, this may take some hunting, or you could ask your favorite retailer to order it for you. ABV: 12 percent.Distributed by Siema: Available in the District at Wagshal's Deli (Massachusetts Avenue); on the list at Maxwell Park, Momofuku CCDC. Available in Maryland at Wine Bin in Ellicott City, Wells Discount Liquors in Baltimore.

Domaine de Mus Rosé 2017
Pays d'Oc, France, $13 in 750-milliliter bottle, or $28 in three-liter box
This blend of grenache and cinsault is a delicious Provencal rosé, with racy flavors of melon and herbs and a slightly tart finish. The importer has sold out of the bottles, but the wine is still available in three-liter boxes, with more on the way. Consider that a nearly 50 percent discount on four bottles. That's a steal. Keep the boxes in mind for holiday parties, from Oktoberfest through New Year's. This is fun, food-friendly, delicious wine. ABV: 12.5 percent.Imported and distributed by Kysela: Available in the District at Cleveland Park Wine and Spirits, Magruder's, Rodman's. Available in Maryland at 5 O'Clock Wines & Spirits in Owings Mills; Dawson's Liquors in Severna Park; Hunt Valley Wine, Liquor & Beer in Cockeysville; Maple Lawn Wine & Spirits in Fulton; Montgomery Plaza Liquors in Catonsville; Montpelier Liquors in Laurel; Old Farm Liquors in Frederick; Wine Bin in Ellicott City; Wine Cellars of Annapolis; Wine Source in Baltimore.

Stobi Rosé 2017
This is an unusual wine, not just because we don't see many from Macedonia. It is a blend of the white rkatsiteli grape (native to Georgia) and the native Balkan red vranec. The mash-up is delicious, a basketful of fresh-picked berries with a squirt of citrus. ABV: 12 percent.Imported by Winebow, distributed by Winebow in the District, Country... Jul 26, 2018
Let the bugs help you in the garden
Plants in the carrot family are especially attractive to parasitic wasps and tachinid flies. To attract these predators, interplant caraway, coriander, dill, fennel and parsley in your vegetable garden and flower beds, and let them go to seed. These flowers are also attractive to adult lacewings, whose larvae are also enthusiastic consumers of aphids, mites and other small insects. Flowers from the mustard family are attractive to predators that prey on the pests of such common vegetable crops as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kohlrabi, kale and mustard greens. Cabbage family flowers to include in your flower garden as predator attractants include basket-of-gold alyssum (Aurinia saxatilis) and sweet alyssum (Lobularia maritima). A variety of predatory insects feed on flowers of the verbena family. It's no hardship including these blossoms in your garden, as they include such popular garden subjects as lantana (Lantana camera), tall verbena (Verbena bonariensis), hybrid verbena (Verbena x hybrida), and lilac vervain (Verbena rigida).Vary your planting schedule so that there are flowers in bloom throughout the growing season.This will ensure that adult predatory insects will always find something on which to feed. Keep in mind, too, that one thing all insect predators need is access to water. A bird bath works well for this, but if you don't have such a feature in your garden, you can make do by filling a couple of saucers with pebbles, topping them up with water and setting them out near your plantings.Finally, if a pest population really gets out of hand and you feel compelled to spray, try to use a product that attacks only the pest insect. Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis), for example, a naturally occurring soil bacterium, typically is fatal only to the targeted type of insect and doesn't affect its predators, other than by robbing them of their prey. At the least, use a product such as insecticidal soap or horticultural oil that kills insects - both pests and predators - on contact but doesn't leave behind any residual poison that will kill new predators that arrive as replacements.

The dukes were Messrs. Vincent Riley Baumer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Kristen Baumer; Michael James Brown Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Brown; Douglas Graham Drennan III, son of Mrs. Drennan II; Blake Lawrence Ecuyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Joseph Ecuyer; Moylan Feild Gomila III, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gomila Jr.; James William Heurtin, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Allen Heurtin Jr.; Karl Ernst Hoefer Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Hoefer; Owen James Hoffman, son of Dr. and Mrs. Gregor James Hoffman; Patrick Crossin Kern, son of Mr. and Mrs. Barry Fitzgerald Kern; Christopher Michael Lane, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Merrick Lane; Miles Edward Lapeyre, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Stephen Lapeyre; William Halpin Nalty II, son of Mr. Donald James Nalty Jr. and stepson and son of Mr. and Mrs. James Lynn Nichols; Alexandre Pratt Provosty, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Pratt Provosty; Sawyer Booth Roussel, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Hayward Roussel Jr.; Michael Bisso Slatten, son and stepson of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Tappan Slatten and son of Ms. Michelle Browder Slatten; William Anthony Slatten III, son of Mr. and Mrs. Slatten Jr.; and Thomas Martin Stall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Ellender Stall.
Serving as the queen’s pages were Misses Lillian Gayle Gorman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Bartley Gorman; Catherine Davis Lapeyre, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Etienne Cassard Lapeyre; Kingsland Eastman LeBourgeois, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Livaudais LeBourgeois; and Anna Hassinger Schmidt, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Justin Burton Schmidt.

In keeping with tradition, the pages presented white orchids to the queen’s and captain’s mothers.
The pages presented bouquets of pink sweetheart roses to Misses Lucie Sandoz Lanier, last year’s queen, and Ellen Heidingsfelder Silvia, last year’s captain.
This year’s queen, Miss Macdiarmid, wore a sleeveless, A-line floor-length gown of white satin featuring a lace top and sash embellished with Austrian crystals and rhinestones. The traditional Les Pierrettes mantle of pale pink and white satin and a glittering crown and scepter completed the regal ensemble.
The maids wore dresses of individual design fashioned along jeune fille lines and carried bouquets of white roses. The pages wore wreaths of pink and white flowers with pink
ribbons to match their tea-length dresses of white satin accented with pink satin jester collars and waistbands.
The queen’s supper immediately followed the ball and took place in the La Nouvelle Orleans Ballroom of the convention center. In keeping with the ball’s theme, one of several of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s quotes, “I wish I’d done everything on earth with you,” greeted guests as they entered the ballroom. Once inside, shades of silver, black and iridescent white depicted the opulence of the Roaring Twenties.
