Georgetown's Blissful GardenDumbarton Oaks Garden, the onetime country estate of Mildred and Robert Bliss, is a delightful place to retreat for a few hours. You'll find it at the highest point of the elegant Georgetown neighborhood. Landscape architect Beatrix Farrand designed the gardens, terraces, and alleys of the more than 50 acres that surround Dumbarton 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.
