Daring to break away from the comforts of La Madeleine, thought we'd actually visit, well, a garden. At the Botanic Garden, there's the Conservatory, National Garden comprising butterfly, regional, water, and rose gardens, and a park across the street. There's also an orchid exhibit going on with orchid-themed adult and child activities. Hmm...
Even though there's no meeting topic, still bring your gardening/landscaping gardening questions (and answers), so we can continue to learn from each other.
Note the earlier time. With no dining facilities there, those of us interested can stick around to help find a lunch spot afterward.
There's street parking in the area a few blocks away. Federal Center is the closest metro stop.
