Dear Readers, 

Recently, I had the opportunity to tour the beautiful grounds of Colonial Williamsburg's Governor's Palace.  (For a beautiful map of most of the gardens of Williamsburg, which collectively cover 90+ acres of the city, please click here.)  The gardens were lovingly restored over a period of some thirty years, from 1930-1960.  The Governor's Palace gardens, which encompass 10 acres, feature miles of boxwood plantings, "falling gardens" (or terraces), a canal to nowhere (click here to read more about that) and perhaps even a Revolutionary ghost or two.

Yours Truly,

Sarah
