“Meadowlark Botanical Gardens is one of the hidden treasures of Fairfax County. Beauty, conservation, education and discovery flourish throughout the year at this 95 acre complex of large ornamental display gardens and unique native plant collections. Walking trails, lakes, more than twenty varieties of cherry trees, irises, peonies, an extensive shade garden, native wildflowers, gazebos, birds, butterflies, seasonal blooms and foliage create a sanctuary of beauty and nature.”
Denitsa and Junis’ engagement session in Northern Virginia at Meadowlark Gardens was amazing! We photographed in the summer and the gardens were gorgeous.
