Discovering the Smithsonian Ripley Garden
On our long walk down the National Mall in Washington, DC, my son and I discovered the delightful Smithsonian Mary Livingston Ripley Garden. What a pleasant surprise! This quiet oasis amidst the bustling city will leave you in awe with its burst of colors and creative displays. Bring your camera to record ideas for your own home garden, or simply take a rest under a shade tree near the decorative fountain.
