Late-Summer Scenes from DC

At the National Arboretum in late August:


Joe-Pye Weed and Crapemyrtle blooming in the Gotelli Dwarf Conifer Collection.


Behind a wildflower meadow, the Capitol Columns.  They once held up the U.S. Capitol.


Around the Friendship House, plant and design ideas for residential gardens.

In the National Gallery’s Scultpure Garden in Late August:

Black-eyed Susans and Crapemyrtle blooming, with the fountains in the background.  The pool is used for ice-skating in the winter.


Alexander Calder’s Cheval Rouge (Red Horse), behind a bed of Hollyhock and Japanese Anemone in bloom.


Tony Smith’s Moondog with blooming Crapemyrtles.
