Ever since I was a child, I’ve always been a fan of gardens and meadows. I will never forget the day I saw the 1993 film “The Secret Garden” — it made me want a garden of my own.
Well, for the benefit of those who haven’t seen that film yet, allow me to share the trailer (so nobody gets left behind):
Any girl would want to live in a fairytale land such as a secret garden. A garden locked up with walls that are so high, that harsh realities could not get inside and pollute the beauty of the garden inside.
Well, so much for daydreaming and let’s head back to reality. Now that I’m all grown up, my passion for gardening has not been lessened at all. I still love flowers to bits, and although I don’t dream of having my very own secret garden anymore, I still love to maintain my own garden at home. Flowers are easier to tend than trees, I’d have to admit. But what good is a garden, without even a single trunk of tree to go with it. I prefer to let professionals take charge when it comes to my tree care.
Nowadays, I also enjoy visiting places that have picture-perfect-scenarios. The Secret Garden of Virginia gives us good ways on how to spend a 3-day tour in the region. Starting with a beautiful garden in Mount Vernon, which was designed by Former President George Washington himself.
If 3 days simply isn’t enough for you, Virginia.com lists down a wide array of Virginia Gardens that are perfect for you and your family to visit.
Now if you’re thinking of making gardening into your own personal habit, then perhaps joining the Garden Club of Fairfax would be a perfect thing to do now. That way, you’ll get a good head start with your home garden and lawn maintenance.
