Ginter Garden

Lewis Ginter Garden
in Richmond, Virginia


Lewis Ginter Botanic Garden just outside Richmond, VA, is a splendid 55 acre
oasis of conservatory and gardens.  We were there on the annual festival day and
enjoyed a delicious lunch in the lovely dining room and then wandered around
the gardens as musicians played and a barbershop quartet serenaded visitors.
It is well worth a visit.  This is the view of the conservatory as you leave the
dining room.




They have more than a million bulb flowers in their spring show,
especially tulips and pansies and daffodils.

This is what Spring should look like.

  1. I do believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What does it really means to us? It only explains that true beauty is not in our physical aspects but in our inner aspects. In short, attitude or character because what you have shown is what people think of you. Beauty comes out naturally. Visit my site #triciajoy for some terrific offer that I am sure you can't refuse. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful article. Have a good day!
