I'm in, I'm out, I'm here, and I'm there...

This won't be a long post.  I'm tired and inspired from my Washington DC trip.  Once in a while the little guy gets to go to the big town and give input.  Cool beans.  After my meetings, I walked my feet off.  These are a few of the photos from the Botanical Garden next to the Capitol.  They aren't the best, as I didn't take the good camera.   
The entrance to the Botanical Gardens.
This was right inside the door.
This is looking up at the roof.
These succulent pots were all over.  I was very impressed with them.
There is a table and chairs in the corner.  It was a peaceful spot.
This is inspiring an addition to the old greenhouse.
As you can see the gardens are right next to the Capitol.
I will share more later.  Sorry the sun is so harsh.  I sure enjoyed the tour.  I always see other posts that take the tour of some beautiful garden.  I never thought it would be me taking someone on a tour.  Hope you enjoyed, I know I did.

I am afraid I am still not fully back to blogging.  I have a bow elk tag, so I am up at 5:00am and  will be sitting in the woods enjoying nature and hoping a good elk steak walks by.  As those of you that know me are aware, I'm not a patient woman so this will be an interesting hunt.  Hope you enjoy the photos.  I will try to keep up with everyone's posts, but you may not hear from me as often.


  1. You had me at the entrance! Beautiful photos and one of my favorite things to do...visiting botanical gardens whenever we travel. Fortunately, I have a very patient hubby! XOXO

  8. Oh what a beautiful place!! Good luck with the elk hunting! You go must be good with a bow! I'm impressed. I've never had elk before...I would probably like it! One of these days, I think I would like to learn how to hunt for pheasant.
