Oh the neighborhood is so inviting. Show your support for the Brookland Garden Club! Tour tickets are 10.00 and you can buy them at Petals, Ribbons & Beyond, 3906 12th Street, NW. For more tour information, call 202-636-2048.
If you can’t make the tour, brighten your day and mood with a stroll through the gardens at the Franciscan Monastery . If you have a passion for roses, you won’t be disappointed.
The gardens are well planned; so a visit any time of year would be interesting. Wear walking shoes if you want to explore the shade gardens. There is a fairly steep hill to get to the lower beds.
Peek inside the monastery or hook up with one of their guided tours.
