Paradise in the middle of Washington, D.C.

We returned to the National Arboretum on Sunday as I had wanted to visit their bonsai display and Japanese garden, and we also managed to take in their peonies, which were in full bloom.

This is a view of the area where the extensive azalea collections are located, which I had photographed last month and which are now pretty well spent. Itís hard to believe that this enormous garden (446 acres) is right in the middle of Washington, D.C., and luckily only a 10-minute drive from our house.
