Capitol Splendor

Parks and Gardens of Washington DC


Featured: Barbara Glickman, Author

Capitol Splendor — Parks and Gardens of Washington DC is a beautiful book filled with photos by Valerie Brown with in-depth essays by Barbara Glickman on 30 gardens in the Washington area.

Barbara shared descriptions and thoughts about 9 of these gardens using a powerpoint with 80 beautiful photos.

She discussed different types of landscape design as a framework for viewing these gardens and parks, including the gardens' history, owners, and horticultural highlights.

The nine gardens were: George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate, Museum, & Gardens; River Farm; Meridian Hill Park; Tudor Place; Hillwood Estate, Museum, and Gardens; Dumbarton Oaks; Tregaron Conservancy; Ladew Topiary Gardens; and the US Botanic Garden.

Copies of the book were available for purchase at the meeting, which Barbara inscribed for our members.
