Just A Taste...

... of the sights from DC. I'll post more in the morning.

These were in a container just outside the entrance to the Conservatory at the botanic garden. They have to be the most optimistic flower ever. They glowed. The colors were just dazzling.

I have no idea what this ruffled trumpet is, but if you do please tell me. I was fascinated. The plant reminds me a bit of eggplant. I'm not sure why!

These were labeled "Smooth Purple Coneflower." The flower stalk is very tall, the flower head is large, and the petals are quite wispy and blow about in the wind. They are lovely set against a green background, but would likely get lost in a mixed border.

That's all for now. More soon!
