Our nation's capital is filled with famous gardens, such as Dumbarton Oaks, and little-known gems, such as Meadowlark Gardens. There are also small community gardens and spectacular celebrations like the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which will mark its centenary in 2012. All these gardens and parks are described and illustrated in Capital Splendor. DC gardening enthusiast Barbara Glickman explores each of some 30 venues in detail, and her essays include helpful information for making your visit and identifying each garden's unique features. The essays are accompanied by a series of photographs by renowned photographer Valerie Brown. This exceptional collaboration will make this stunning book a must-have for visitors and residents alike.
