Dumbarton Oaks gardens. Oh my goodness. This is the most amazing place I’ve seen in DC yet.
So when you first enter you see this giant field of lovely green grass. I thought to myself, “Yeah, this is nice. I can see why people would pay $8 to get in here.” Then we found a trail and it took us into Alice’s Wonderland. I’m serious. Behold….
Spring seems to be a pretty awesome time to visit. Besides the bare rose garden that’s still waiting to bloom everything else looked and SMELLED incredible.
I’ve seen wisteria so many times but I think always from far away. Here, I was able to get up close to it and smell it. Amazing. I have been missing OUT! Smelling the sweet, delicate fragrance of a flower growing in nature is one of my favorite things on earth. We’re trying to pass that enjoyment on.
That top right pic is the conservatory. Probably the eighth time we turned a corner and were just blown away. They have gardenias and citrus trees in there so it pretty much goes without saying that the aroma in there is indescribable.
As soon as we turned a corner and saw this mosaic E made a beeline to point out the dog.
This place is faaaar too magical to be wheelchair/stroller accessible. We were so glad we brought the foldable umbrella stroller.
We were trying to walk around the house to find the entrance to the museum and what did we stumble upon? Oh, just a field of daffodils! We never found time to get to the museum so we’ll have to see that another day. I really didn’t intend for this blog to be the travelogue that it’s turning into!
