Linking to Tuesday Treasures
I visited Mount Vernon today, home of George Washington, with a friend visiting from North Dakota. She hadn't been to Mount Vernon since she took a bus trip with her mother here years ago.
It was a glorious spring day. Trees and blooms were much further along than they are at my house.
I especially enjoyed seeing the redbuds in bloom.
Can you beat the blue of that sky?
You can even see the blue reflected in the glass.
And what a wonderful setting for a home on the Potomac River!
Our founding fathers offered George the kingship, but he turned it down. He also turned down running for a third term as president and the smooth transition of power made a start there.
His carriage though looks fit enough for a king.
