Botanic Garden – gem in D.C.

Model of Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. made from natural resources.

Watch closely or you’ll miss it. 

Nestled among the federal buildings, traffic, hustle and bustle, along with trying to drive to keep from crashing while checking for special sites – is a wonderful botanic garden – practically on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.

I guess it is befitting so those who work in Washington, D.C. to be able to have a garden to provide a little stress relief.  It’s good for guests too!

I was pleasantly surprised during our visit in late November to see the special displays mixed with the unique garden and conservatory.

Wow, it is amazing to see some of the monuments and special structures build with natural resources.

The displays fit right in with the Christmas and holiday decorations. 

Blessings and love along the way,
