Spring at Monticello

Monticello Gardens

On our trip to Charlottesville, Michael and I made sure to spend a morning at Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, in order to take in the beautiful spring gardens. It was drizzling slightly when we arrived but cleared up shortly thereafter (while Michael was getting his history geek on with a tour of the home), so I took the opportunity to escape from my spot under a big shade tree and take some photos. Cherry blossoms, early garden vegetables, and beautiful varieties of tulips were just a few of the things that caught my eye.

  1. Thanks for the memories….been on many occasion in many different seasons..; is one of my favorite places…Jefferson also being my most admired person in early american history for his architectural, botanical, mechanical genius, and talent as a statesman. and not indiscretions with the Hemmings family, which, in no way has changed my opinion of the man.
