  3. Botanical Gardens are always so beautiful. It is really nice seeing all the pretty and colorful flowers especially being that we are freezing here in Virginia. It is so cold here today. It is always nice, too, to see the young people sitting together on the grass, and the gentleman painting...he adds so much to the lovely atmosphere. Loved your pictures today.
