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.

    I'd be right with you on the historical garden week if I lived nearby . Love gardens! xx
