For several years now, I've enjoyed visiting the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia. Each April is the most awesome time to visit, with spring weather and their luxurious blooming of tulips. Today was the perfect day; the sun was warm and strong, but the heat wasn't too bad, with temperatures topping out at around 82 degrees. The flowers were in good form, and it was great to see some improvements around LGBG too, like a new bridge, a new walkway, and the new glass ornaments. Of course my favorite part is the color. This year was no less disappointing. I liked breathing in the fragrant air (with the help of Zyrtec) and the time for reflection. I really think this garden is one of the brightest gems in the Richmond, VA area. Check out other photos from the garden on Flickr by a variety of photographers.
