Christmas In The Colonial Garden, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia



The Colonial Garden is a unique and popular fixture in Colonial Williamsburg.  They grow vegetables and decorative plants year round using the same techniques as the colonists. These photos show some of the Christmas decorations and gardening wares available for purchase including centerpieces, bell jars and cressets - iron baskets on a stand to hold burning wood, coal, or pitched rope for light and warmth.

Adults and children, alla of us, should participate in the care of gardens. Nice photo and better message.

Whenever I visit your blog, I'm reminded about how much I'd like to spend some time there! I wish life were carried on as simply as it once was. Their 'style' really appeals to me. 'Less is more'.
