Governor’s Palace Gardens (Williamsburg, VA)
Here in the State of Virginia we are under ‘stay-at-home’ orders, but we can go out to take exercise and for groceries (maintaining our social distances.) Last week Colonial Williamsburg opened up the Governor’s Palace gardens for a few hours each day, so Virginia went walking there on Friday.

Usually tickets are required to enter the Palace gardens, something most locals do when visitors come to town. Since our family visitors usually come for Christmas or in the summer, it was a treat to see spring flowers in bloom.

The Palace gardens are beautifully organized with all kinds of plants, flowers and budding trees. Friday’s blooms included a plethora of dogwood.

Beauty lurked around circuitous corners (aMazing!)
…and more dazzling tulips everywhere!
grace, peace & fair visions (the blooming kind)

“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps the greater.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Oh, these are stunning — thank you, Virginia, for sharing them! It’s gray and rainy here — way better than SNOW! — so I don’t need an excuse to stay inside, ha!
Glad you enjoyed the ‘tour’ Debbie – hope the rain has lifted enough for the Sun to come back out where you are. Blessings & (palatial) garden grace – VA 🙂

Tulips are magnificent
This year the tulips here really ‘popped,’ Susie – a delight amidst coronavirus challenges. 🙂
I miss that.
