River Farm Garden Tour

 

First and real quick….

What a fun week!  The Home Girl featured the Coco Chanel inspired hairband holders on her last link party.  I sailed on the USS Crafty as T’Onna featured my Nautical Journal DIY.  And Cathy at A Peek into My Paradise featured my guest post for Disney Month.

A Peek Into My Paradise

 

 

———–

Part of our Summer Staycation was a trip down the road to the George Washington River Farm, a 25 acre historic site along the Potomac River.  The gardens were not only beautiful but very kid friendly.  Check it out…

Before touring the gardens, of course you have to stop and enjoy the beautiful view of the Potomac River.

Yes, I did say kid friendly. They had many structures made out of natural elements for kids to climb over, crawl under, jump on, run through, etc, etc.  See the picture below?  Doesn’t it look like a little grove of tree plants?   Yes and no.  There is a maze through it.

Another structure for the kids to run through.

There were as many butterflies as species of plants.  The butterflies were everywhere!

Fly past you later, alligator!

Love, hugs, and enjoying another free summer vacation.
