I had a wonderful trip to nearby Green Spring Garden Park a few weeks ago with a friend. It is in nearby Fairfax, Va. They had just redone their lily ponds and nature trails. Here is their web site:


I go to walk the trails, visit the many gardens and visit the historic house. They also have a wonderful educational program. We always stop behind the education building to see what plants and seeds are for sale. I came home with twelve new plants that were on sale. They make a nice addition to my garden.

These pink lotus blossoms in the pond are beautiful. When they open up, you'll notice that the seed pods look like "shower heads". They had many of these in their ponds. They also had white lilies in the pond too.

It's fun to go back and see all the plants and gardens at different times of the year.
