The one thing I had planned for this trip was to visit this garden. Melanie's blog of an earlier mom's group visit really interested me. We went on the perfect day. The sun shone through the trees creating a dappling on the cool shady path as we meandered along enjoying the day.
The Garden is such a gem. I loved it from the start.

A tribute to the Oyster Tonger, A Chesapeake Waterman
was the first statue.

Aby and Jaycob are examining one of the many benches through out the garden. Each bench represented a different type of tree. The concrete seat would have examples of that specific tree's leaves, flowers and seeds embedded in into it.

Every year the garden has a Public Art Project. This year's was titled "PILLARS: Wishes for a Better World."
Melanie and the children had colored recycled bottles at an earlier visit. They were very excited to find their bottle and some of their friends bottles in the display.

There was a side path called the Women Path. It had many statues of different sizes, shapes and ages of women. This is the one I found that represented me the most.

I'm upset I didn't feel well enough to even remember the side bridge path!!
