Happy Fourth of July!
Today is also Liberation Day in Rwanda.
A year ago today, my husband and I took a different way home from Georgetown and discovered Dumbarton Oaks Park, one of the country’s garden design treasures. I took a lot of photos and blogged about it a couple of days later, here.
The 27-acre, Washington, D.C., park was designed by Beatrix Farrand and given to the National Park Service in 1940. It has been in a poor condition for decades, but since 2010, the Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy has been working to restore it.
On Saturday, July 7, the Conservancy will hold a Storm Clean-Up to remove debris from the June 29 derecho storm. They are asking for volunteers to join them from 9:00 a.m. to noon, starting at the Lover’s Lane Entrance on R Street.
