Mother's Day Weekend in Pictures...


The young one and I spent our Saturday at the garden fair at Blandy Experimental Farm (The State Arboretum of Virginia). If you live in the area or are visiting I highly recommend it. It's a great place for a picnic, wandering the grounds and taking pictures. They also have summer camps and workshops. Although it was a blustery kind of chilly day we had fun. There were many vendors...I got some organic vegetable and herb plants (Radical Roots Farm) and some pottery pieces for my mother in-law.

We made tissue paper flowers, leaf rubbings and looked at bugs and flora under microscopes in the one room schoolhouse...


We got to see this beautiful screech owl...
And took lots of pictures!








Sunday the three of us went to the Burwell-Morgan Mill in Millwood,VA for the Spring Art at the Mill Show . The mill is beautiful and was packed to the brim with local art. I think Mr. Hare and I are going to submit work for the Fall show! Here are some of my favorites...
