My friend Carmen and I finally made it over to the U.S. Botanic Garden (http://www.usbg.gov/) this year. The exhibit at the entrance to the building is their first-ever textile exhibit, “A Stitch in Vine,” featuring beautiful botanically-themed quilts handmade by artists of the Chesapeake & Potomac Applique Guild (http://www.quiltguilds.com/maryland.htm).

Also on display is their annual Orchid exhibit. This year’s exhibit is “An Alphabet Garden of Orchids,” and remains on display through April 13. There seemed to be even more plants on display this year than last, so there were ample photo ops. These are just a few of the more graphic shots I got.
