To lift my spirits David took me to Greenspring Park yesterday where we walked and walked. Years ago, I worked as a volunteer in these gardens…particularly the children’s garden. Greenspring’s reason for being is education…adult and children’s education. I’ve taken garden writing classes there and they also hold gardening symposia in the main facility. My daughter, granddaughters and I have attended several functions over the years. My new header shows the gazebo where concerts are held in the warmer months. Other photos below show some of the amenities of the grounds, which were once the home of a US diplomat before they were given to Fairfax County VA.

Children’s garden, up this hill on the left. I couldn’t take my rollator on the gravel
We had our dogs with us and taking photos was a challenge.
