If you visit the Washington National Cathedral, don’t miss the Bishop’s Garden.
This medieval-looking garden designed in the early 20th century is right next to the Gothic cathedral. Stone walls, circulating paths and elevation create mystery and make the space interesting. If there is a heavy snow, which does not happen often in D.C., snow laden trees allow you to frame interesting shots of the cathedral. When flowers are in full bloom, they become pretty foreground for your shots.
In spring and summer, you can easily spot butterflies in the garden.
