D.C. garden - is it yours?

I was riding along Wisconsin Avenue in Washington DC yesterday for my job and saw the most gorgeous tropicalesque garden in the front yard of a townhouse in the Georgetown area. I think we have someone on the board that lives there, and I just wanted to say that if it's your garden, it is splendid!!

There was a large banana centered in a small yard, and underplanted with lots of lush stuff. Unfortunately, I went by too fast to ID anything else.

It's not mine, but I'm wondering just where it is. I drive on Wisconsin Ave. occasionally but have apparently missed this garden.

I wish I could remember. I was riding with a bunch of people and not paying a whole lot of attention when this lovely banana caught my eye. It was on the northeast side of the street, I believe on the west side of Georgetown or maybe farther out, if that helps any. If I ever get down that way again (probably won't), I'll take notes for you!
