A Final Look at the Gardens

Well, it's about time for me to wrap up on the trip! Here are a few more garden pictures before I do that. We saw beautiful flowers and landscaping in many, many places. The three specific garden areas we visited were the U.S. Botanical Garden in D.C, the National Arboretum in D.C., and the Buffalo Botanical Gardens. I can highly recommend each one.

Here's a beautiful display at the Buffalo Garden and looking skyward:

Somewhat similar to the Botanical Garden in Washington, DC:

The bonsai display at the U.S. Arboretum was fantastic. Some of these trees dated back to the 1600's and one was saved from a location not far from where the bomb dropped in Japan at the end of World War II. Incredible!

There were many specific gardens represented. Here is the Culinary Garden. Not as much was in bloom as you might see at other times of the year, but there was certainly plenty to see.

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of what we saw on our trip... now back to the regularly scheduled program.
