a visit to Meadowview in Virginia

Recommended Posts

Hello,

a bit more than one week ago, a german group of six people came back from a trip through the southern states of the USA. I am slowly getting through my pictures and will now start to show the one or the other picture of what we found.

For four of us, the trip started in Virginia. We were really happy to get the chance to visit Phil Sheridan at Meadowview! I have been there in 2010 already and so i was really interested to see how things are going on there. We spent a whole day at the Headquarter watching at the plants, sitting in the sun, having some good chats and doing a small representation of our trip to Western Australia from 2011.

Here are some pictures of the plants and animals we could see at the Headquarter:

In his greenhouse, he also keeps some subtropical Drosera and Nepenthes:

There is a pond right behind the Headquarter, that has a large population of Aldrovanda in it:

There is also the Duff McDuff Green, Jr. Birding & Wildlife Trail close to the Headquarter. We were guided there and could find some of the S. purpurea, that are growing there:

Our first day in the US came finally to end and we drove back to our Motel. For the next day a trip to Joseph Pines was planed. More about this soon.

Lovely photos. I would love to visit one day. On a side note, taking a look at the sign, 'Duff McDuff Green Jr' is a hilarious name.

Hello,

the next day we had the chance to see Meadowview's Joseph Pines Preserve. Phil was so kind to take us there and to show us around. Thanks, Phil! We really enjoyed the time with you.

In the early afternoon we had to leave there, as we had to be in Wilmington that night. We arrived there on the late afternoon, just in time for dinner.

Virginia is a beautiful state. I've been there a few times and was amazed at how much there was to see and do. It does get a bit too hot for my taste, but the beauty sort of makes the suffering well worth it. Glad you had a nice trip.
