United States Botanic Garden

The Botanic Gardens were stunning!
There was so much to see, it's hard to know where to begin.
Filled with poinsettias, fresh greenery, Christmas Trees, trains and so much more.
You have to see it, to appreciate how beautiful it is.

The Conservatory is fill with thousands of flowers,
including a showcase of heirloom and newly developed poinsettia varieties.
The star of the show are the D.C. landmarks made from 70 different plant materials,
and the Christmas Tree with it's own model train.

Let me share with you the beauty within!

The Washington Monument

The Supreme Court

Lincoln Memorial

Jefferson Memorial

The Capital

The Smithsonian 

The National Botanic Gardens

The White House

The Biltmore House

What more can I say, I hope he never grows up!

That is pretty amazing how they made all those buildings. Did they make the Biltmore house blue or is that the lighting?

Beautiful ... I didn’t know about all these wonders in our nations capital (where we’ve never been, in any season). You are probably going to tell me you have blogged about them before, but be kind. Remember, I’ve been a senior for many many years now . (I DO remember you mentioning your surprise about getting those sr. tickets in your previous post, but only because I just read it a few moments ago). As long as you two stay young at heart, age doesn’t matter (and what the heck, take the discount!)

Oh wow they did a fabulous job on those buildings and that they were all made out of plant materials is just outstanding. It is neat how they added the flowers around them also! Love your picture by the tree! So neat your hubby is such a ham :) Yep it's more fun if they don't grow up :)

I am smiling on this one due to see your smiling faces and your fun hubby. This does look like a spectacular place to visit. I loved all of the places that show buildings in DC. We have been to Washington DC about three times and I have fond memories of these visits. These are beautiful photos and I loved looking at them all.
Blessings and hugs!
