Monticello-07

This late fall weather has been cold, dark and wet, so I found some springtime pictures to brighten things up a bit. These are from Thomas Jefferson’s gardens at Monticello.

He gathered plants and trees from all over the world to grace the home which he designed and built on top of a mountain south of Charlottesville, VA. His home is a national treasure and is well worth a visit. Great care has been taken to restore all buildings and gardens to their original splendor.

I have also created a new photo album to try and capture more of the peace and tranquility of Monticello.

I hope these images evoke memories of warmth and sunlight for you. We could surely use more of that in our area.

    Thanks for that! I’ve had Thomas Jefferson on my mind lately, as I’ve been researching a post.

    Those pictures kind of served as a coda.

    Thanks so much for this post and the photo album. Monticello is one of my favorite places on the planet. The flowers and gardens are truly a sight for sore eyes. Jefferson had a flowering plant named after him in Latin, but I forget the name now. It’s living on the walkway loop on the fish pond side. A visit to the cemetery down the hill always brings me to tears.
