a date in the city

It felt like we had D.C. all to ourselves. Destination, National Art Gallery.

Poinsettias and white orchids among sparkling trees welcome Christmas visitors.
A gardener's dream, this place.
my favorite
I fell in love with Dietrich's wildflowers bathed in window light,
suddenly missing my garden all over again.

Pieces such as these, preserved for so many hundreds of years leaves one speechless.
da vinci
No wonder these halls are nearly silent.
I could spend a whole day in this place...I nearly did.
Since I had the perfect date to share it with.
