Part 1 - The Garden at Stonewall Jackson's Home-Lexington, Virginia

A couple of weeks ago I took a little ride to Lexington, Virginia. Lexington is the home to several interesting attractions and one of my favorite and oft visited spots is Confederate General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson's home . This house is the only one that Jackson ever owned and it is located right in town. The garden is beautiful and I thought you might enjoy some photographs of it. Isn't this clover heavenly? And, the little johnny jump ups peeking out are so precious.

I agree, that clover field is oh so beautiful, the blossom seem to sway in perfect harmony. The Johnny-Jump-Ups are endearing!

Just the other day was I trying to remember this little viola's name. I photographed one in a Viennese garden.
