I shot this in Washington, DC, a few months ago. It wasn’t until I uploaded it to the computer that I noticed the bird! Perfect! Enjoy this entrance into a lovely garden of some official building.

Yes! Thanks for stopping by Carl. Have a great weekend.
Why is it official buildings always have great gardens, no matter where you are in the world? That little bird…..
Yes, they have beautiful gardens. . .behind locked gates! Look but don’t touch. The bird was a nice touch, don’t you think? 🙂
I like the symmetry (and how that bird offsets it ever so slightly)!
Thanks. I thought the bird was a nice touch, too! 🙂
I wonder where its mate was.
Thanks for stopping by!
The bird is perfect and aren’t the flowers gorgeous.
Hi Brenda! Glad you like the photo. The bird was a nice, albeit unexpected, touch. Have a wonderful week.

Lovely photo Cecelia. The tone, with those wonderful flashes of colour, is perfect!
Glad you like it, Patti. The color does make this photo work. Thanks for stopping by.
I like the shock of fuchsia and purple flowers. They seem to mock the officiousness of that government building.

Beautiful. The bird gives the picture a peaceful quality.
Thanks gobetween. I agree. Even thought it is small, there is something about that bird that adds a special quality to the photo. Glad you like it.
Those dang’d birds get everywhere don’t they 😉 The garden looks colourful.

That entrance must be belong to someone filthy rich.
Thanks Mizz! This is some government building or embassy in Washington, DC. It is rather oppulent, but beautiful Glad you like it, and thanks for stopping by.
