Umbrellas were a necessity on Sunday morning!
The rain continued, creating problems for visitors leaving through the field and we were finally forced to close the gate. There's always next year!
Our 3rd Annual Open House in June, 2008 - clear skies and pleasant temperatures welcomed our first visitors!
We always make an effort to have a large selection of the plants we offer at our Open Houses. However, we're also more than happy to make a quick trip to the nursery for special requests if the plant you're looking for isn't here!
Customers always appreciate the tremendous variety of perennials, trees and shrubs we have available. This year we included plants at drastically reduced prices in our 'bargain bin' which was a huge hit with our customers!
Every year we exhibit at Botanical Garden Fairs throughout Virginia beginning in April and it's always a mad dash to get the gardens ready! This year we attempted to provide a 'personal tour' with before and after photos so visitors could see the progression of the gardens over the past few years.
The before and after photos are posted in different areas of the gardens.
Closer inspection of the area surrounding the pond.
We try our best to be available to answer any questions you may have about specific plants in the gardens.
Another year and another successful weekend - thank you! We're going to be planting all summer, concentrating on some areas that needed improvement and developing Rick's new woodland garden. Be sure to visit us in 2009 to see all our changes!
It's Spring, 2009 and we're ready for our 4th Open House and Plant Sale!
The cool rainy weather this spring has been ideal for the gardens and the Weigela border is in full bloom for visitors!
