Virtual Garden Tour

The azaleas are blooming at Botanical Gardens, now I know the drive may be a bit far for you all but I wanted you to see how beautiful they are, so I thought I would take you on a little virtual walk with me...they really are lovely.

Our spring has been delightfully "spring like" with temps in the 60's during the day...kind of unusual for southern Virginia. The milder temperatures have prolonged the blooms on our trees and shrubs.

The Garden has an annual plant sale every Mother's Day weekend, it's been a great way to try native plants. I have managed to keep a butterfly bush alive as well as a rose of sharon that I have purchased through one of those sales

Our Ladies Group makes an annual trip to the Garden's when the Rose Garden is in bloom, that should       be in another couple of weeks. There were just a couple of roses blooming this weekend

Hope you have enjoyed the walk and hope you are enjoying spring where ever you may be. Does your city or town have a garden that you can visit?

Spring always makes me think of new beginnings

Thank you for sharing this walk with us. Those azaleas are simply gorgeous!!

My village doesn't have a flower garden, but there is a University of Illinois Extension Program Master Gardener Demonstration Garden in our little town and community vegetable garden (where we have a small plot). There is a Botanical Garden in St. Louis ... about 30 minutes from our house.
