Bishop’s Garden ~ Washington National Cathedral

Thank you for your care and concern about my procedure Friday morning. Everything is just fine and I won’t need that procedure for another 7 years! We went out for a nice dinner and all is well. Hope your weekend is off to a good start…

Continuing with my posts from our time in Washington D.C.  I’m breaking down the posts so you don’t get photo overload. The grounds of the Cathedral, called the “Close” are comprised of fifty-seven acres, which include the Cathedral, three schools, the offices of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington and St. Alban’s church.  The grounds also include the Bishop’s Garden.

The Bishop’s Garden is modeled on a medieval walled garden.

This Equestrian Statue of George Washington sits at the base of the Pilgrim Steps. From here, the Pilgrim Way winds through the 5 acre Olmsted Woods.

This is a side door to St. Alban’s.

Washington D.C. has so much to take in and enjoy. You can never see it all in one trip. I’d suggest you choose one major site a day and do it justice. You could add in a smaller site but beware of overload. Space your day out with a good sit down meal, too.
