I've been an absent blogger, but I have been taking pictures for a class on Lightroom. So here's a series taken during a 3 week span at the Washington, DC, US Botanic garden. Yes, it's possible to be immersed in a wild and woodsy native-plant garden right below the Capitol building. It is an unexpected pleasure.
p.s. I realize some of my photos show non-natives. There are other areas at USBG that don't feature native plants, but the "Regional" area within the National Garden is devoted to natives of the Mid-Atlantic region. It's 10 years old this year!
