Yesterday the Gardening Group of the Newcomers Club of Greater Charlottesville toured the Japanese Gardens at Maymont in Richmond, Virginia. The garden was at the height of Spring and the day was a cool but bright sunny day. Maymont is a Richmond treasure gifted to the City of Richmond upon the death of the original owners, The Dooley's. Other generous gifts were given upon their death to area non-profits, an Orphanage and the Public Library being a few.
