Dumbarton Oaks

My daughter and I traveled to Washington, DC last weekend, partly for business but mostly for pleasure. We had beautiful weather, stopped into all my old haunts in Georgetown, saw friends, ate well and laughed a lot. It was a perfect escape. Following are a few photos from the enchanted garden at Dumbarton Oaks.

  6. Looks like you had beautiful weather while here! They give tours inside the actual house on a first come first serve basis on Saturdays once a month. I live just a few blocks away but still haven't made it! one of these days. Like you I've only been to the gardens and in the greenhouse / conservatory.

  7. Phyllis,
    What beautiful gardens. It is always fun to spend time with adult children, isn't it? It looks like the weather was lovely as well.

  9. Your photos are great, and I'm so glad you had good weather. Dumbarton Oaks is a classic historic garden, and your photos do it justice.

  10. That's lovely. I've never been to DC and by the looks of things have been missing out. Such classic beauty.
    Safe travels to London. Btw, love your pretty profile picture. Who knew Phyllis was a 19 year old? :)
