An afternoon in the Italian Garden in Maymont Park in Richmond, Virginia.

Maymont Park is a 100-acre Victorian estate and public park in Richmond, Virginia. One will find the Maymont Mansion, formal gardens like the Italian Gardens, and the Japanese Garden, a nature center, and the Children’s Farm.
In 892, Major James H. Dooley, a wealthy Richmond lawyer and philanthropist and his wife Sallie, completed their Gilded Age estate on a site high above the James River. Their wishes were to leave Maymont to the people of Richmond, Virginia after their death
