Green Thumb Sunday: National Gallery garden

They’re good places to stop and breathe and mull over the paintings just encountered. Here are some of the flowers from one of those conservatories, snapped in early September:

    Very pretty. Roses seem to be a popular choice today….could it be we’re all subconsciously wishing for summer already?

    What a perfect experience combination! I’d love to stroll around there :-)

    Colleen, I think your theory sounds fairly valid to me!

    Mrs. Lifecruiser, it’s a really nice respite spot amidst all the art. Very peaceful.

    The conservatories sound lovely as is your flower photo.
