The fence pickets have interesting shape at the top. Haven't seen that before.Virginia is pretty in the spring.
pretty designs for needlepointing!pve
Lived there for 4 glorious years right along the York River. My husband's work brought us back to N.Va. a few years ago, but I miss it always!
April in Williamsburg looks like May in MaineOh, who am I kidding? It looks like June in MaineLovely photos. You are good.
Love these flickr photos...
I noticed the shape of the pickets too. In Britain the Edwardian train stations have white-painted wooden fascia (if that is the right word?) to the platform roofs/covers (again I don't know the right term), the endings of which are cut into simple decorative patterns, each station having a different pattern.
When but a mere stripling, in terms of waistline rather than age, I was one bright-blue-sky-after-snow morning, the first tourist to arrive - no-one else was around and it seemed for a while I was back in time. Eventually a woman clad in costume turned a corner to the main street where I was and did nothing to alter the delusion.
What wonderful photos!! And they brought back such happy memories of when I visited Williamsburg with my mum and sis many years ago. I must make another trip there sometime . . . it was so interesting (and fun!).
When I was growing up I was enamoured of Elsweth Thane's Williamsburg novels. It always sounded and looked like the most wonderful place to live. And Blue's adventure is the perfect Williamsburg moment.
so pretty - great pics! love that first one especially. Governor's palace?
Happy memories for me too. A good friend of mine had this wonderful, intimate wedding at the W & M chapel and then it was out to Westover for the reception by the water. Oh Janet how I wish you had been along to take pictures!
your blog is simply delightful... so happy to have found you. xx
Yes, it's lovely absolutely.Have a nice day!
