This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Historic Garden Week in Virginia. Over two hundred homes across Virginia will be opened to the public during this week. I've been attending this event in Lynchburg since I moved to Virginia in 1987 and it's the highlight of my spring!

 

Sponsored by The Lynchburg Garden Club and Hillside Garden Club, several local homes and gardens are opened to the public and it's a delight to walk through perfectly manicured gardens and beautifully decorated homes.  This year, Garden Day in Lynchburg is Tuesday, April 22, 10 a. m. to 6 p. m. The following homes will be on the tour:

4411 BOONSBORO ROAD

1450 TRENTS FERRY ROAD

1340 WAKEFIELD ROAD

 

In addition, the following will be opened at no additional charge: Point of Honor and Sweet Briar House. Also open, Sandusky, The Anne Spencer Garden, Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest, The Old City Cemetery, Miller Clayton Gardens.

Debbie, I have not yet travelled to Lynchburg...I've backpacked Shenandoah National Park, walked most of the DC area, and dined in Alexandria, but Lynchburg looks beautiful. I hope to make it one day. Enjoy the Historic Garden Week (I'm sure you will), as it is sure to be beautiful in late April.

Bo, you are in a beautiful area of the country and it was nice to see buds on the trees this past week. I love the mountains around us and the Shenandoah Valley is spectacular. Hope you get a chance to come up this way sometime. Thanks for commenting.
