It's Historic Garden Week in Virginia



I love Historic Garden Week because so many homes and gardens are open for tours. Some have never been open to the public before. Unfortunately, we were super-busy this week and only made it to one house and garden. It was Oakwood in Delaplane and the weather was unpleasant: rainy and cold. Still, it was worth seeing.

We get ideas for planning our own gardens from touring various gardens. I've seen the value in hard-scaping and laying out outdoor "rooms." Of course, anything we do will be modest compared to some of the fancier gardens.
