April showers bring May flowers, but you have a chance to check out some of the area's nicest blossoms now.
Historic Garden Week is under way across Virginia. More than 250 homes, gardens and historic locations are open through Saturday. Take a drive and check out landscape design, architecture and interior design.
The sites on the tour aren't just pretty, either. Many of the homes have histories that date back to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
Ticket sales benefit the restoration of historically significant Virginia grounds and gardens. See the complete schedule here.
