[Photo Journal] Castles and Gardens in Washington DC


Myra here.

Beginning in 2015, we will be sharing photographs on Tuesdays about our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Enid A. Haupt Garden in Washington DC

When my family and I were in DC November of last year, we took the Hop On Hop Off Bus to get a better feel of the city. One of our first stops was the Enid A. Haupt Garden. Talk about secret gardens, magic castles, an enchanted vibe – they’re all here. Hope you enjoy the photographs.

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” 
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
