My daughter and I are off to Virginia for a week of vacation. I am leaving number one son to watch over the place and my Mom. I have yet to break the news to him that he may have to water a few (or more) containers if it does not rain. LOL!
I have always wanted to visit Monticello and the gardens of Thomas Jefferson. Charlottesville is holding their Historical festival while we are there and we want to roam around the old district of the town. Look at some old taverns nearby. It is probably a good thing I do not drink wine because it looks like Virginia has their fair share of wineries.
Another spot to visit on the list is the Lewis Ginter Conservatory and Botanical gardens in Richmond. Since I love our conservatory in Columbus, Ohio I wanted to check out another conservatory to see how they compare.
We want to ride out the beautiful Parkway and Shenandoah valley area, maybe see Luray caverns and the Natural Bridge.
We are going to take our time and just stop when we spot something that looks like fun.
Of course you know my radar will be set to make a bee line to any flowers along the way.
I am apologizing now to all Virginians for wandering around your gardens and snapping pictures or disturbing your week. It will just be the crazy garden lady from the Buckeye state so please do not have me arrested. LOL!
Pelargonium ‘Caliente Fire’ Geranium
I will be traveling with a big camera around my neck and no doubt a smaller one tucked into my jeans pocket. LOL! And I reminded daughter Shelly not to forget her camera already once. It will likely be the first thing I ask her when we take off in the car to leave Saturday morning. “Got your camera?” Who cares if we forget the suitcases we have to get pictures.
We are hoping the weather will be nice to us and not rain the whole week we are there.
Jan where did you say your garden was? LOL!
