The Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens of Richmond, Virginia

This has been on my list of places to see for awhile now, and with my time in the city growing to a close, I’m glad I was finally able to see such a beautiful part of Richmond. I’ve heard this is a breathtaking place to be at Christmas, as well, and I hope I get the chance to come back and see it lit up with all kinds of gorgeous lights!

A few of the volunteer crew from RJ Reynolds working in the Community Kitchen Garden. They harvested peppers, squash, tomatoes — and helped us clear the old squash beds for fall planting. All food harvested goes to FeedMore, the local food bank. #rva #volunteers #urbanag #farming #farmgarden #latergram (at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden)

Visitors with British accents are enjoying this scene with me. Happy to have the company! #waterlily #waterlilies #blooms #turtles #rva #rvablooms #nofilter #rvagardentrail #loveVA #travel #virginia #nofilter #nature #naturerocks (at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden)
