Garden Week - Charlottesville, VA - April 2007

Each year the state of Virginia has a magnificent garden week in Spring with various areas of the state participating. There's so many estates in this area, we take it as an opportunity to see places that are not open at other times of the year. For some estates it may be a one time showing of their gardens, so it's always a real treat to venture into these hidden gardens.

This year we visited Morven Estate and later in the week took some time to visit property owned by the University of Virginia:

Carr's Hill, Home of the President of UVA and Morea House, built by John Patten Emmet, one of the first professors chosen by Mr. Thomas Jefferson for The University.
