Last pictures of Ginter (3)

The property that Lewis Ginter Botanical garden is on was once Powhatan Indian hunting grounds. Patrick Henry owned it at one time also.
Lewis Ginter, a Richmond business man purchased nine acres in 1895.
Having colleagues in the Commonwealth and Westmoreland Clubs, he allowed to build the Lakeside Wheel Club. A destination for Richmond bicyclists.  It was taken from a one story structure and made into what is now the Bloemendaal House.

Some shots around the home.
pretty potted flowers

The sky was darkening



Adalyn and Genevieve walking around the Japanese gardens


A gentleman showed Adalyn, Genevieve and Opa how to properly fold and make their rabbit?   I think that is what it is.  Very serious children I see here.  Opa must have messed his up.


Happy Wednesday
Part One  and   Part Two
