After taking in the Smithsonian Folklife Festival - we walked by the Smithsonian's rose gardens...
And then stopped in for a stroll through the gorgeous wildflower gardens. Based on the number of pictures that follow I think you can guess my favorite!
Their collection of Passion flowers were amazingly beautiful. I had never seen these in person before! I was love-struck :)
Here we are in the middle of the garden.
After our stroll through the garden - we checked the National Museum of the American Indian. I had never been to this museum and the building itself was definitely the highlight. What an awesome shape!
