Summer and Mrs. Bliss

Thankfully, the weather in DC is lovely today; not too hot or humid. A perfect day to wear a summery dress and power down the air conditioning! We visited Dumbarton Oaks for the first time. The estate and surrounding gardens are spectacular. Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss purchased the estate in 1920. It sits at the highest point in Georgetown. The couple hired landscape gardener, Beatrix Farrand to design the gardens - lovely! We will visit again soon.
