I’ve admired this garden for many years now (and featured elements of it numerous times). I imagine I’ll be featuring this garden, located at 16th & V Streets, NW every spring that I run this blog. Anyway, I was complementing the owner (seen in the background) and he told me why the pond was originally put in:
He said that people used to cut across the yard all the time so they installed the pond. That cracks me up because it looks so perfectly planned.
