The gardens at Dumbarton Oaks, Georgetown

I visited the gardens at Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown the other day — after a cruise down Wisconsin Avenue past a couple of old haunts I frequented in my 20’s with characters like Nickolai Butkevich and Rhett Carlson.

The gardens were beautiful, and a sharp fir smell greets entrants like a rarefied, ethereal, quiet host.  It reminded me of Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, another quiet place to which I’d like to return one day.

If you’re in the Washington area, and you’d like to see for yourself, check out Dumbarton Oaks’ website here:
