Did you know that April is Keep America Beautiful Month?  I didn’t either ’til the folks over at Dropcam reminded me.  Before April is over, I wanted to take a few moments to appreciate the beauty here in Richmond and specifically here at the Garden.  There’s so much beauty all over the Richmond Region — and I would argue, the rain only makes the blooms more beautiful. So, weather you are off to see Historic Garden Week in Virginia, in town for the Collegiate Road National Championships  this week or just touring Carytown, be sure to stop and appreciate the beauty that is all around us here in Richmond and across the state.

And if you are inspired to make a MORE beautiful #RVA — consider joining the BeautifulRVA coalition, we’ll be posting info about the next meeting soon.
