Birdbath In the Ripley Garden

This week, the skies are gray, the news is all about hurricanes and the ground is sodden from weeks of rain. As an antidote, I share a sunny moment in my favorite of the Smithsonian gardens. Each curve of the walkway leads to a different little scene. Season to season, year to year, the flowers come and go as do the accouterments. There could be glass gazing balls, birdhouses or, in this case, a bird bath. Imagine yourself sitting on a bench in the dappled sunlight. Enjoy the leafy calmness.
