Georgetown's Blissful Garden
When the weather in Washington, D.C., is delightfully sunny and dry, I can think of no better way to spend an afternoon than at Dunbarton Oaks Gardens. Tucked away in the highest point of this elegant neighborhood, you'll find the onetime "country estate" of Mildred and Robert Bliss. Landscape architect Beatrix Farrand designed the gardens, terraces, and alleys of the more than 50 acres, which surround Dunbarton House. In late March and early April, just as the cherry blossoms begin to bud in Washington, the Forsythia Dell is a curtain of gold—the first sign that spring has arrived.
