Happy Anniversary

To celebrate our year together Nick took me to Meadowlark Botanical Garden. It was the sweetest most thoughtful idea ever.  It had been cloudy all morning but the sun came out just for us as soon as we got there.  I took a million photos  (He knew I would).

In season this month are: Daffodils, Minor Bulbs, Tulips, Magnolias, Flowering Cherries, Potomac Valley Native Wildflowers, Rock Garden, Conifers Collection, and Lenten Rose.



This Asian gazebo is still under construction. The wood work was gorgeous, and Japanese cherry blossoms had just been planted. Imagine this 15 years from now...




This one of the red and dark purple tulips is my favorite.  It reminds me of something from Midsummer's Night Dream.


I can't wait to go back next month for the Peonies, they are my favorite, and then in June for the Daylillies.
