Placeholder for Tuesday

We spent the last day of spring break in Richmond, where we once again had ridiculously beautiful weather though we are starting to worry about the lack of any noticeable rain for weeks. We met dementordelta at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, where we went to see the visiting exhibitions on French postwar photography and tomb sculptures from the Court of Burgundy, plus the fabulous permanent art deco and art nouveau collections and some of the modern art.

We had lunch at the VMFA's cafe, then went to the Lewis Ginter Bontanic Garden, which currently has orchids in the conservatory and tulips in many places on the grounds, plus lots of azaleas and peonies; we also saw many birds, a goose on a nest, turtles, caterpillars and inchworms, bees, and a stuffed Easter bunny. We met Lin for dinner at Mexico, our favorite Richmond restaurant, after driving through pretty neighborhoods full of flowers! A couple of photos, more later in the week:
