My aim was not to see his exhibit again, but to spend more time in the Smithsonian Gardens next door. At this time of year, many unusual flowers are in bloom featuring those from South America, Argentina and Brazil, for instance.
I took photos now so that I can use them as references for water coloring this winter.
I happened upon some unusual material and will share three photos here.
“The Smithsonian Butterfly Habitat Garden is 11,000 square foot area that supports plant species having specific relationships to life cycles of eastern United States butterflies. It is located on the East side of the National Museum of Natural History at 9th Street between Constitution Avenue and the National Mall in Washington, DC.”
