Virginia Historic Garden Week. - Petersburg Tour. April, 2016

Have you ever ended the day with aches and pains, but you enjoyed earning every one??? Ha!! Our Garden Club went on  the Petersburg Garden Tour that celebrated Virginia Historic Garden Week.  The day was so beautiful and balmy.  We enjoyed walking through the homes and gardens.  The homes on this year's tour were exquisite and the Petersburg Garden Club's members created floral designs that mirrored the elegance of the homes.  Three historic homes in old Petersburg, and three modern homes in nearby neighborhoods were showcased with floral designs reflecting the styles of the homes.  I hope you enjoy some of the photos.  None of the materials lists stated the name of the designer.

Photos of Reflective Floral Designs

I love to see examples of different types of flower arrangements.  These reflective floral design pics were found on the web and I thought they were beautiful.  As you can see this type of design takes some imaginiation.  Mirrors are always popular in a reflective floral design, but any type of silver, pewter, or anything with a sheen works well too.  Enjoy
