The Children's Garden at Meadowlark Gardens, Vienna, Virginia

A Loving Recipe for a Perfect Cup of Tea


Willing friends who love to sit and share
Grateful hearts in each friend who cares
A beautiful garden to sit in and enjoy
Memories of times shared throughout the years
Lots of smiles and laughter to brighten up a day
While passing on a kindness along life’s highway.
And a few friends to share a special cup of tea
Truly makes this a perfect recipe.

What a delightful place, Denise!!! I think this is for children of all ages, because I am a child at heart and I love this. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

This is awesome!!! I want to go, and I am 65! My favorites are the awesome tea party and the frog reading at the sunflower table.

I'm sure young and old would want to spend time in this quirky garden. I like the man with the bucket head and grass hair! :)

I would love to wander round there, Denise. I could use the excuse that I'm in my second childhood... grins.

Love the frog and the figure in the apron with a plant pot on his head. Imagination let loose, methinks.

I'm struck by the beautiful art works...maybe this is for children, but the sculptures are all winners!

It takes a lot of creativity and hard work to come up with something as delightful as this child's garden. Nicely done.

How neat.... Not only children would love that garden... Adults (like me) would love it too...

Loved the first little picture showing the frog/rabbit/bird, etc. having a tea party. NEAT.

Hugs,
