Yesterday my photographer friends and my non photographer friends (a.k.a. the willing photography subjects) decided to go to the Botanic Gardens. Why Not? It was a beautiful day, a bit hot, but clear skies as far as the eye can see.
The US Botanic Gardens are located on the right side of the Capitol. Depending on which scenic route you prefer you can access it via the Navy Memorial Metro, the Smithsonian Metro, or the Capitol South Metro Station.
I suggest starting outside before you go inside, or even bring a picnic and sit outside in the circle.
Just watch out for the bugs.
You might be a little bit too late, but the Botanic Gardens is having an Amber Wheats of Grain Exhibit, just outside of the front doors.
Or Maybe you can just hang around the gazebo, or the beautiful bridges scattered throughout the gardens.
The Rose Garden smells like an expensive perfume store, except my nose didn’t feel like it was about to explode when I left.
But enough of the actual Gardens, and lets go inside.
You can go outside when your inside ?! (that was an attempt at an interrabang, which sadly failed).
There are so many interesting little nooks and crannies within the US Botanic Gardens, maybe instead of reading my post you should just go. Hurry up, it’s free!
All I can say is that this wasn’t the first time I went to the US Botanic Gardens, and it most certainly isn’t the last time either.
