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.

Jordan's Point - Lexington, Virginia

I love the textures at play on this old house...the rusting tin roof, the peeling plaster revealing the stone structure beneath. I think it beautiful.

Down a Country Lane - It's Spring

I so love to wander about the country roads down the road from my home. As I've mentioned in previous posts I am 5 minutes from the tranquility of the countryside. Have a lovely day.

Here are some captures from the Buchanan Civil War History Weekend that I hope you enjoy. It was hotter than **** the day I decided to attend. And the BUGS were as big as .... that is the James River in the background of some of the shots. The seventh photograph is General Lee addressing the townspeople.

"A" is for Alpaca

This weekend past I had the chance to visit a friends farm. He and his wife raise alpacas. I had a wonderful time watching the shearing process of his herd; shearing is done yearly in the Spring. For the alpacas I think it was a welcome relief as the temperatures here in Virginia had been into the 80s for several days including the day of the shearing. I have to say that the alpacas were very sweet and welcomed me into their pen with great curiosity.
