A great place to relax and get inspiration is a garden.  A wonderful small garden on the Smithsonian Mall is the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden.  The garden surrounds the old Castle building.

Here is some of my inspiration from my last visit.

Add an interesting birdhouse…

Planter ideas and an interesting bench.  Check out the herringbone brick work.

Paint a watercolor painting of peonies.

And just relax in the shade listening to the water fountain.

Hope you find inspiration and create beauty everyday.
