Botanical Gardens

 I had lunch with a friend at the Botanical Gardens yesterday and wanted to share some of my pictures with you.
The glass sculpture is part of a special display going on at the garden.

The large flowers in the background are glass.

The houses below are part of the working train display.  The train runs through a village of houses made from natural materials and small live flowers.

  1. Everything is so beautiful there! Is that the one in DC? We used to go there a lot when we lived in Maryland. It was one of my favorite places to go when we lived there.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. This is beautiful, what a great day. Your blog is so cute and I love your adorable doggies. So glad I found you :)

  3. Angela,

    The gardens are in Richmond, VA.

  4. Doesn't that put you in the holiday spirit! Merry Christmas, Sharon to you and your family!

  5. Hello! I have been so busy with things that I didn't see you there! I do so apologize! Of course you have probably heard about my eye problems and changing Rx's. Please forgive me. I was sliding my mouse over and came to your (my) name and it was one of those ????? moments!

    Lovely gardens and flowers!

    Cute pups, I like Corgis!

    A (sorry) late welcome and I hope I see a lot of you!
