Meadowlark Gardens and the Traveling Tea Cup…

we are in the midst of Autumn splendor days here in Virginia…

with really pleasant temperatures…

 brilliant blue skies and sparkling sunshine…

the perfect time to visit a nearby garden 

we saw lots of people with cameras in hand making the most of the day…

the 95 acre property has lots to offer with walking trails and lakes along with special gardens featuring extensive varieties of plants and trees which are carefully labeled for curious plant lovers…

we saw parts of the property that we had not visited before as new features are being added all the time…

we were delighted to discover a Garden Tea House area geared toward children…

with some whimsical and charming touches

there was a tea table set with a few special guests already in attendance…

a lovely place to linger…

and stop to smell the flowers…

whatever season you are in I hope you enjoy many special moments…

  7. These are so amazing photos. You just want to get out and go for a walk! Here in England it looks very sad at the moment, it is foggy and grey and really depressing to look out of the window …… thank you for making my day this little bit more colourful.
