This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia's springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with over 2,000 flower arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members.

Tour proceeds fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia's historic gardens, and provide graduate level research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth, and support the mission of the Garden Club of Virginia.

Virginia Beach Garden Tours
April 22, 2015 
Hosted by The Princess Anne Garden Club and The Virginia Beach Garden Club

Beach cottages hold a special attraction for everyone who’s ever enjoyed a vacation on the sand. They evoke memories of sun, fun and relaxing to the rhythms of the sea. A railroad company laid out Virginia Beach’s North End, a narrow three-mile strip that is only 2 blocks wide for much of its length, in the 1880s and sold lots for summer cottages. This tour includes 5 private homes and gardens in the North End, a garden, as well as the new Brock Environmental Center, Virginia’s “greenest” building, and home to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. Today’s North Enders, both full-time and part-time, are increasingly interested in preserving the beaches and waterways that drew them here. Tour includes visits to an oyster garden, a bird watching tour at the end of the day at the Brock Environmental Center (space limited) and access to 6 nearby historic properties on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday.  Questions? virginiabeach@vagardenweek.org

Seashells... Down by the Seashore

"One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few. One moon shell is more impressive than three. There is only one moon in the sky."
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh, ''Gift From the Sea"

One of the most relaxing pastimes at the beach is to clear your mind, stroll slowly with loved ones along the shoreline, while gathering seashells on the beach. Sandbridge is the perfect place for shelling offering a quiet, secluded 5 mile stretch of beach to explore. 

The casual shell collector can enjoy shelling year round... even during the colder off season. 

Here are a few tips to make your shelling expeditions even more fun:

Best Times to go Shelling:
Experts tell us that low tides, and the times of the new moon and the full moon, bring the best shells. If you visit immediately after a summer or fall storm, you’ll find that the rough waves and strong currents will dislodge shells in shallow water and toss them onto the beach.

What To Bring for Shelling:
If you’re going to do any serious shelling collecting, be sure to bring a strong mesh or canvas bag to carry your finds — shells can get heavy very quickly. You’ll want to bring along water and sun protection, as well as your basic beach gear. It helps to bring along lightweight beach or water shoes to protect your feet so you can explore areas along the tide line where shells are arranged in thick bands.

What Shells to Collect:
Keep in mind that an inhabited seashell is a sea creature’s home! Please don't remove an occupied seashell, or live starfish, from the beach.  If you find you’ve picked one up,  don’t throw it into the water - place it gently down to avoid damage.  Abandoned seashells, of course, are fair game.  You’ll find beautiful ones in gently-used condition along the coast.

Creative Fun with your Seashells:
You don’t have to be a conchologist (serious seashell collector) to enjoy seashells for years after you collect them. Combine shells with flowers to make beautiful centerpieces — or arrange with live plants in the garden. We’ve seen shells used for a wide range of crafts projects, including clever mobiles, front door wreaths, jewelry, and even beautiful shell-filled lamp bases.

If you plan to pack your shells, or use them indoors or for crafts, you will want to cook them to remove bacteria. To clean them, boil them gently in hot water for at least 20 minutes or soak them overnight in a weak solution of beach before rinsing and allowing to dry thoroughly.

Now that you've got all the facts, get out there and have some fun!  Shelling is truly a gift that keeps on giving. You gain not only beautiful memories of peaceful times along the shore, you also get to take away a special beach souvenir.  Enjoy the hunt!

A Dolphin's Promise

Norfolk has mermaids, the Outer Banks has horses, Richmond has rockfish… and now Virginia Beach has dolphins! A Dolphin’s Promise is a non-profit organization working in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach to bring hundreds of life size sculptures of dolphins to the shores and neighborhoods of our beautiful city. 

This is a project with a very important purpose; to raise one million dollars for cancer research and to help save and protect marine life. Ninety percent of all money raised will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation with the remaining ten percent going to the Virginia Aquarium Stranding Response Program. Each uniquely decorated dolphin will serve as our city’s promise to do all we can to help fight cancer. 

In the beginning:  
Cindy Graf and Jean Siebert

The following letter was written by the Founder of “A Dolphin’s Promise”, Cindy Graf

In 1999, my mother passed away at the age of 64 from colon cancer. Since that day, I knew that I needed to create a legacy for her.  I have been given so much in this lifetime; now I felt it was my time to give something back and to make a contribution to society in a greater way using my talents as an artist and combining them with a project that could raise money to fight cancer seemed the perfect match. I chose the dolphin because to me it embodied all of the qualities that I so admired and loved in my mother - her grace, her compassion, her quiet inner beauty, and her giving spirit that profoundly touched everyone she met.  I felt the dolphin would be the perfect symbol of her hope and compassion. 

Cindy Graf with the 1st & only Livestrong Dolphin at Siebert Realty
My journey took me to a woman named Jean Siebert at Siebert Realty.  I told Jean of my dream to create a Livestrong Sculpture project using the dolphin and without hesitation she said to me "I think it's a wonderful idea, let's make this happen!" Then she said "tell me what you need." With that she handed me a check and so began my dream with the help of one exceptional person with a good heart who said "yes." 

~ Cindy Graf

Private citizens, groups, organizations, and corporations can all get involved in this exciting project. There are many levels of sponsorship, each with its own benefits and rewards. We encourage everyone to be involved in this “one of a kind” project. All funds will be handled by the Virginia Beach Foundation.
