These photos were taken on the grounds of the Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens in Washington D.C.
I will be posting photos from the museum and gardens later this week. Hillwood is definitely a Ruby and hidden treasure in Washington D.C.
Please visit Mary at Work of the Poet to see more Ruby posts…
Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

The first photo is a delightful scene with the little bird and ruby flowers in the background!
P.S. I have refreshed several times, but the 2nd photo won’t appear! Clicking on the little cross top left doesn’t help either!
You won’t believe this! After my comment recorded, the 2nd photo appeared! So delightful with the little bird perched on the sign!
I like the industrious bird sitting and relaxing a bit – and seemingly not concerned with the nearby photo artist…The blurry ruby flowers convey such depth. What a lovely garden in DC!
What great shots, Ellen! I love them both.
Lovely little wren!
Yellow or red—which shall it be?
Red for you and yellow for me?
Perhaps you’d rather have yellow instead—
Which leaves me, of course, with handfuls of red!
Whichever hue you decide to choose,
I’ll take the other—no one will lose!

Have a great Tuesday. Hope you can find time to stop by and shout out a ‘howdy do’.
Awwww – such tweet (sweet) shots!
Great photo of the bird perched on the sign!
Oh Ellen! Submit those photos to Bird and Bloom magazine! How wonderful that you got those shots!
these shots are lovely
the composition is so wonderful
I’m not sure what kind of bird it is – but the photographs are terrific. You did a great job.
