Finally I am getting around to showing you the last set of pictures from our recent road trip - beautiful Williamsburg, VA! We have a good friend who lives there and when we visited last time on New Years, it was so windy and cold that we barely saw anything of this historic town. But this time the weather was gorgeous and we had the best time!
We loved this beautifully maintained garden and got some inspiration for our garden next year! We were also able talk with some of the gardeners there about the problems we are encountering with gardening in the south.
Look at those castor bean plants! They seemed more like shade trees to me! In our yard, they are about half the size. When we asked why, we learned that it is the power of manure...
After we got back, Daniel learned that one of his ancestors used to work in this building when the town was first settled. We didn't know at the time, so of course now we have to go back!
Alright, now something I have been so remiss in doing. A big thank you for two awards I was given while on our road trip. This first one received from Darla, whose blog I so enjoy every single day! Thank you!!
And this lovely award was given to me by Angela Recada, a fellow German native whose blog is just wonderfully inspiring! I am so grateful!Make sure you visit both of their blogs! I know I am supposed to pass this along to other bloggers, but I am so busy today (Daniel starts teaching again tomorrow) that I am simply passing it on to you all. All of you inspire me daily with your blog posts, your photos, your artwork, your writing, your thoughtful comments on my blog, simply by being you and sharing yourself with me!
I am very grateful for each and every one of you and am so glad we got to meet (at least in cyberspace).
