We loved the unusual perspective that Traci Eagle took for this shot of our azaleas. She was last year’s second-place winner.

A Million Blooms isn’t just about flowers. It’s about an experience. The feeling of walking under a “snow shower” of cherry blossom petals, the inspiration and renewal you feel after stopping to smell the roses or the excitement of spotting the first patch of spring ephemerals — the legendary (but ephemeral) Virginia bluebell.  Our favorite photos are the ones of people enjoying the blooms!

Whether you are visiting to see the daffodils or tulips or for Mother’s Day, we want to see your best photos on Instagram. Use the hashtag #MillionBlooms when you post them to enter to win.

During A Million Blooms join us as our Cherry Tree Walk blooms, we celebrate Go Public Gardens Days and more!
