On Saturday, we visited this beautiful home perched atop a hill in the Piedmont of Virginia - Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
My favorite part of the interior of the home is all of the gorgeous windows and doors with antique glass. (Sorry, no indoor photography is allowed.) However, my favorite thing to do when visiting Monticello is to roam around the gardens, specifically the vegetable garden.
The last time I visited Monticello it was in the early spring when the seedlings were just being planted, so it was nice to return at the end of summer. I could spend all day just gazing at the garden and vineyard. Guests are welcome to enter the gardens and walk wherever one pleases.
I love the simple, but elegant, garden markers used throughout all of the beds.
There were lots of brightly colored cockscomb and even some grapes drying on the vines.
