May Contain Blueberries

the sometimes journal of Jeremy Beker


I am officially done with Winter. Thanks for the pretty snow, but see that door over there? Please use it. Thanks!

I hadn’t realized just how much I needed that smell of fresh air, the colors, the sight of growing things until this past weekend. Tiffany and I went up to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond to take some pictures. Walking the grounds was nice, but entering the greenhouse was amazing! There was one wing of the greenhouse that was filled with spring flowers and the smell was just divine. I contemplated securing a cot and camping out there for the next few weeks. If they had wifi, I would be totally set.

Hopefully it will be just a few weeks and the flowers will start showing their faces outside. Until then, we may need to make a few trips up to the gardens to bolster my spirits.

As a side note, we became members this year and it is a really great deal! It was $60 for an Out of Town Dual membership that gets you unlimited entry into not only the Lewis Ginter gardens but hundreds of others around the country including the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. You should do it!
