Gift Shop at Monticello

Gift Shop at Monticello
Originally uploaded by linfrye
While there were ample flowers at Monticello, especially the oval beds behind the mansion, I was impressed by this one bed filled to overflowing with all sorts of flowers. It sat at the corner in front of the gift shop and where one would turn to walk up the path toward the house.

It's going to be another scorcher today. Students have finished their summer semester and many of the instructors (not me, sigh) are off for two weeks. It's quiet on campus ... a rare moment experienced only between sessions and much enjoyed ...!

Very lovely. The soft tree and the delicate flowers and the colors all flow so well against the more detailed building in the background -- a reversal of the "detail in front to "fading background" - very nice. I love it.
