Alright, so summer has arrived in Virginia and boy oh boy are the plants in bloom! The Norfolk Botanical Gardens is one of my favorite places to go here. I know, I know.. Plants? Boring!!! I’d have to object. The grounds of this place are amazing. There is simply no other word that I feel like writing down to describe it. The gardens are a non-profit museum for plants. However, this place is so much more. Its an amazing date location, a peaceful place to collect your thoughts, and in their children’s garden a blast for kids! Seriously, the kids zone will be enough to buy a membership… ehem, parents. Weddings are conducted here, because it has some of the most romantic locations I’ve ever seen. That’s saying a lot. I grew up in Southern California. We had every landscape available to us in that state. They recently added a carnivorous plants exhibit, which is awesome! It’s very tiny, but how often do you see exotic carnivorous plants? I’ll post some photos below to give you an idea of the wonders of this garden. This is .0001% of what you will experience. If you are ever in Norfolk, Va give this place a try. It’s wonderful!
