april in williamsburg


Red bud trees, blue skies, and soft breezes. I really think Virginia is at its best in the spring.

A Willamsburg set on flickr (with lots yet to come!).

The fence pickets have interesting shape at the top. Haven't seen that before.

Virginia is pretty in the spring.

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 Maine

Oh, who am I kidding? It looks like June in Maine

Lovely photos. You are good.

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.

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!
