A Drive Through Blandy

I drove through the State Arboretum a few weeks ago. This tract is part of the Blandy Experimental Farm in Clarke County.

In 1926, Graham F. Blandy bequeathed 700 acres of his approximately 900 acre estate to the University of Virginia. The university keeps it up and uses it for environmental research and education. I am thankful that this beautiful place is open to the public.

Sharing with Fences and Thankful Thursday.
