Where Washington - - CONTENTS -

Our beloved cherry blos­soms have put on their show and ex­ited stage left, but this month brings bril­liant aza­leas, del­i­cate dog­woods and col­or­ful tulips. All th­ese and many more botan­i­cal beau­ties thrive at Hillwood, the for­mer es­tate of ce­real heiress and el­e­gant green thumb Mar­jorie

Mer­ri­weather Post. On the 13-acre grounds, lush out­door “liv­ing rooms” like the fra­grant rose gar­den and the for­mal French Parterre trans­port vis­i­tors to a rar­efied by­gone era. After strolls here, I in­evitably come away re­laxed and re­ju­ve­nated. Yes, D.C. is full of en­tic­ing di­ver­sions, but do take some time to smell the roses!
