I’d Rather Be… Gardening

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be …

After four more inches of snowfall today, it was easy to come up with what I’d rather be doing …  gardening, of course!

Here’s what the garden looked like today.

A few springs ago, we visited Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello.  Knowing that Jefferson was a keen gardener, it was no surprise that the trustees have maintained attractive gardens on the grounds.  Even the vegetable garden is a thing of beauty.

As we headed back home via the Blue Ridge Parkway,  a snowstorm moved in and reminded us that spring can bring all varieties of precipitation.

    Yes, wouldn’t it be a dream-come-true to own a farm in Virginia?!

    Beautiful country! I’m itching to get into the dirt too.

    Lucky you! I think Virginia is one of the most beautiful states, with mountains and lots of green.

    Ah, more snow… It’s so difficult to be patient. Love the photos of Monticello. We’ve spent much time there (lived almost 20 yrs in VA) and always ooh and aah over something new in the garden.
