Around The Garden World - Day 43 (Maymont Park, Richmond, VA)

Maymont was the home of James Henry and Sallie Dooley who gifted their home and 100 acre estate to the public so that future generations would enjoy their homeplace as much as they did.

I really liked this verbena - has freckles like me!

Wow! I am impressed and feel like I'm back in Europe! Love the structures and the ponds, and all the garden vignettes, and of course The Voice! Thank you, Barbara!
