Flowers After Five at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens

The Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens is one of Richmond's top attractions, with spectacular garden displays and botanical collections that are beautiful year round.  In addition to its 50 acres of gardens and 11,000 square foot conservatory, Lewis Ginter features a full calendar of events, classes, lectures, and concerts.

One of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden's great Summer events, Flowers After Five, is a weekly offering from June 2 through August 18, 2011 featuring wine tasting, music, and - of course - flowers!  This year Flowers After Five features wine tastings, specialty beers, and great local fare chosen by in-house caterer Meriwether Godsey. Guests can also view the special exhibit "Diamonds in the Rough" stick sculpture by Patrick Dougherty, which which displayed adjacent to the Rose Garden. In addition, the Tea House, which is normally open daily for lunch, serves dinner during Flowers After Five, with its large windows offering panoramic views of the lake and garden as you enjoy your meal.

A very (very very) special feature of Flowers After Five occurs on the selected Thursdays of July 14 and August 11th-- Fidos After Five, when leashed pets are allowed to attend the event!   Maury Place Inn Dogs Chico and Lucy can't wait!
