“A fair vision welcomed him in this land of disease.” J.R.R. Tolkien
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!)
grace, peace & fair visions (the blooming kind)
Virginia : )
“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
