 Another early morning run on the Capitol Crescent Trail. Cooler today and even cooler tomorrow. After a walk around the neighborhood, a trip to Foggy Bottom for some Swing coffee and on to the US Botanical Gardens. Lots of orchids. More sight seeing, a Peruvian chicken dinner and then a depressing Danish movie, The Hunt. (innocent man gets caught up in a string of false sex abuse things can snowball out of control)
View of the Capitol from the gardens

Amber waves of grain: how discovering various wheat cultivars changed the world. OK sort of boring but important.

Aside from the orchids, lots of bromeliads too

Liked these

What is this rehabbed building? Hillary Clinton's Washington residence. Near the Italian Embassy, which would NOT let us in.

Extra big anthrums

My path for 3 out of the 4 running days. Didn't get to bike on it as planned. Most used rail trail in the US.

Sigh on the photo front. Though they are truly beautiful. Thank you for not only taking them, but wrestling blogger to put them up.
