A Winter Garden

Dumbarton Oaks, Washington, DC

Dumbarton Oaks garden is one of my favorite places in Washington. To be more accurate, it’s one of my favorite places anywhere. For awhile, when I first moved to DC, I went there every fair-weather Sunday to sit on a bench and read the paper in beautiful surroundings.

I thought I remembered that the garden was off-limits to visitors from November to April. I either misrecalled or the policy has changed. I went waltzing in this afternoon; not only was it open, but nobody was taking admission fees either.

I intend to renew a more intimate acquaintance with this glorious spot.

    Oh, that first one is a beauty! What are those curvy roofed things? I can see you are learning your pancake lens. Now I wish I had gone for that one instead of the G11.
