I love these wood structures created by artist Patrick Dougherty. Each structure is site specific.   I was really excited to learn that this September he will be working on a structure in a very dear to me park, Dumbarton Oaks in Georgetown, D.C.  I cannot wait to check it out next time I am there!  I promise to post pictures whenever that might be!  Here are a few of my favorite ones:
