Water Features At The Glen Burnie Gardens

Being in the midst of a serious drought here in the southwest 
it is easy to start thinking of water.

And the place I think of when I think of water 
is the Glen Burnie Gardens in Winchester, Virginia.

These beautiful gardens are situated around a series of springs 
that provided fresh water to the house
 of Glen Burnie and also the original town of Winchester.

Before they were given to the town of Winchester,
 they were lovingly restored by Julian Glass and Lee Taylor 
from the 1950s to the 1990s.

This is the third post I have done on Glen Burnie:

With so much water it is easy to find ideas
 for designing a water feature.

Not only is there a lot of water here,
 there is also a lot of limestone.

If you ever have the chance to stop by I recommend a visit.

Winchester is in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia right off of Interstate 81 
and about two hours due west of Washington, D.C on US 50.
