OT-CHAT: Garden Week in Virginia

It occurs to me that some folks may wish to know more about Historic Garden  
Week in Virginia, which I mentioned earlier. This came about when the  
organization, The Garden Club of Virginia, which is distinct from the federated  
garden clubs, having grown out of the Garden Club of America, decided to  throw a 
party to raise funds necessary to restore the garden at  Kenmore, a Washington 
family property in Fredericksburg which was in bad shape.  The event was a 
phenominal success, so they took the idea and ran with it,  moving on to 
Stratford Hall, and a whole series of distinguished  restorations which continue to 
this day. It was also through the influence  of the James River Garden Club, a 
founding club of the Garden Club of Virginia,  that the Iris was named the 
City Flower of Richmond in 1921.
