My precious Mama always said, “April showers bring May flowers.” Since most of us can’t visit our favorite gardens at this time, here are a few favorite pics from past visits to celebrate May Day 2020 with flowers…
Butchart Gardens, (Vancouver Island, Canada)
Norfolk Botanical Gardens (Norfolk, VA)
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden (Richmond, VA)
Governor’s Palace Garden (Williamsburg, VA)
National Arboretum (Washington, D.C.)

Gorgeous flowers!! 💐 🌸 🌹
Thank’s Cin! Flowers = God’s Heavenly paintbrushes busy, busy! 🙂
All of these flowers are so pretty!!
Thanks, Michelle. We are looking forward to when our favorite gardens will open up again…. Blessings – VA
So beautiful!! Flowers bring hope, cheer and love. Once you can go out safely, I look forward to seeing more of the gorgeous plants and flowers in the gardens.
Thanks, GH. We are looking forward to visiting our favorite gardens in Richmond again (about an hour drive) – we usually make spring treks that we missed this year, but at least we still have pics from visits past. WE are blessed that our gardens here in Williamsburg are open, a real treat. We’re allowed to go out ‘exercising’ – a blessing with such beauties on view. Take care! 🙂
I shall look forward to seeing more of your pics once you can go back to normal life post covid. Happy Mother’s Day weekend ahead.
Mother’s Day blessings to you, GH. Treasure the moments! Hugs! 💐🤗💐
Thanks – my little “children” (inanimate furballs of Garfields are happy!) I treasure the moments with my mum and please take care.
You continue to take care, GH. My Garfield & friends are happy, too! Hugs!! 💐🤗💐
I love these, Virginia — thank you for sharing them! My mama, too, took great delight in making May baskets for us kids when we were growing up. Such a lovely tradition — so sad it’s not as popular or well-known as it should be!
May baskets are lovely tradition, Debbie. This flower groupie totally approves! 🙂 Blessings!
Love the Audrey H quote! Time to put our tomatoes in the ground!
Tim, my brother already has a few of his garden potted plants going on our deck. I’m always amazed how his fig tree (stored in the garage as nubs over the winter) grows leafy and big every year…. Gardening graces to you! 🙂
Beautiful pics all!
Thank you – looking forward to visiting nearby Botanical Gardens when they’re open again. Blessings! 💐👀💐
Beautiful post and photos! God bless you dear Virginia! ❤
Thank you, Patty. We flower groupies must stick together! Blessings & big (flowery) hugs 🌸🌟🌷🤗🌷✨🌸
