With a snap of the fingers, February is a distant memory. We have been very busy at the Museum with tours. The Gardens are beginning to awaken from their winter slumber and ready themselves for Spring. The daffodils in their various colors of yellow and white are starting to spring up from the dirt and bloom. The yellow bearded iris never stopped blooming over the winter. City Landscape Services will begin the rehab of the gardens in a couple of weeks. I am excited to announce that for the first time (that I know of), the de Witt Cottage will be listed in the Historic Virginia Beach Garden Tour brochure. Over 1,500 copies of this brochure will be printed and distributed. It is my hope that this will introduce new visitors to our Museum and Gardens. If you have a chance, stop by, sit a spell and let the gardens delight you in their color and small inhabitants. Don’t forget to check out our beautiful gift shop too.
We will be sure to keep you updated and informed on upcoming events keeping the State of Emergency, COVID-19/Coronavirus into consideration and awaiting further statements or instructions from local and national governments.
