Meadowlark Botanical Gardens

I spent this weekend in the company of family and friends, celebrating the life of my mother and marking a year since she passed away.

Included in this was a trip to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA, a place that we loved to visit with Mom.

The kids enjoyed exploring all of the smaller gardens within the larger property; in fact, I’ll do a separate post later on just the Korean Bell Garden.

The scene above made me think of Monet’s garden in Giverny. If only the bridge were green.
