Morven Park Gardens

One of the reasons I’m doing NaBloPoMo is to encourage myself to clear out some posts from my mental que; things that I meant to share but didn’t, in our Family Summer of Sadness.

So this is a bit out-of-date, but still pretty, I think: Morven Park, Leesburg VA, May 2015. We’d gone for the 20th Anniversary Annual Meeting of the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.

What can I say? The girl loves frogs and turtles!
