Marble Columns

Marble columns! Elegant, sturdy, and bursting with class.

Nothing says you've got money and power like marble columns! You put marble columns on your house and that place looks like a mansion!

Look at these columns! Look at this one. Look at that one.

You gotta get yourself some marble columns!

Where was that pic taken Mr. Hippo? Looks like a "green screen" Fx to me!!!

I'll blog about them more at a later date, but these "marble columns" are really sandstone columns from the U.S. Capitol Building. You can learn more about them here.

I think you must have been at the National Arboretum in D.C. That's where those columns are located. The arboretum is a lovely place, esp. in April when the azaleas are in full floral bloom. The only problem is that the surrounding area is kind of dicey. I don't think a little hippo like yourself should be going through bad D.C. 'hoods. You're better in a pleasant suburban setting.

WOW! I stand corrected Mr. Hippo!
I apologize for doubting you.
I'll add those to my "bucket list"!
Thank you for the info.
