Hey, welcome back. I apologize for the poor lighting, as the gardens are only open from 2-6 p.m. in the summer. The worst time for photographers. I’ll probably go back in the fall when the sun’s not so high.
This little allée is called “Prunus Walk” for the flowering plum trees. In the spring they’re covered with blossoms. Those unusual ogee rooflines belong to tool sheds in the cutting gardens. Here’s a look at one of the sheds in entirety:

And now we’re in the cutting gardens. Enjoy….
I love the way the Western sun is hitting this flower. I believe it’s some kind of hibiscus, but nothing like the ones I saw in California.
Buddleia or butterfly bush
This is an example of how having the sun behind your subject can work for you. I am liking this sunflower glow a lot.
Probably a gazania, maybe a zinnia.
There is just something so sweet about lantana surrounded by lots of green.
Well, it’s closing time, so we’re back at the gates. There wasn’t time for the rose gardens, so that’s another post. I wouldn’t mind living in the place across the street…how about you?
Gorgeous! I feel like I need to plan a trip to DC with my family just to see this place. You’re my new favorite photographer. 🙂
Love the sunflower ‘glow’ shot – what a wonderful garden!
Great shots! Even though the sun was high in the sky you’ve captured some nice shots. I love the second shot – I think because the path seems to go into infinity.
Thanks for sharing beautiful pictures these I still always enjoy your photos.
Such nice comments, everyone. Thank you!
Wow! I’m so glad these pictures were the first thing I saw this morning… 🙂
They are simply amazing Ms. Pearl- I love the flowers close-up!
