Spring at Colonial Williamsburg

  While living in Virginia Beach, I was able visit Colonial Williamsburg several times, including this year at Christmas time, and most recently this May. Its possible to tour many of the historic buildings, but I never have, I just enjoy walking around. On this particular trip, I stayed until after dinner when all the buildings had closed, and discovered that I was free to wander in and around many of the yards.

 The gardens are beautiful, and I especially love the kitchen gardens, which incorporate flowers and vegetables together. I like the formal design of many of these gardens, often juxtaposed with unruly plants. The colonial farming methods, although not organic, are very interesting too.


  1. Colonial Williamsburg is such a neat place. I've been twice, once as a kid and once while in college. Both totally different experiences, and I'd love to go back again!

  2. I love Williamsburg! I went a number of times as a kid. It's been a long while since the last time I was there.
