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
