On the next beautiful day, I'll read in the presence of beauty at the U.S. Botanic Garden!

What I really want to see this month is snow, but that seems unlikely. So on the next crazy 65 degree day, I'm going to grab a bench and read a great book in the presence of Patrick Dougherty's Stickwork Sculpture Installation at the U.S. Botanic Garden, right near the U.S. Capitol. There are numerous benches around this work of art, seen differently from all angles. I almost settled on a bench inside amongst some greenery, and if I'd been here a few days earlier when it was windy and in the 40s, I'd have sat and read my Washington Black in the tropical rainforest. Probably would not have lasted more than a chapter, but still worth it! #books #art #reading
