Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Inside Maryland's State House

The Maryland State House underwent renovation a few years back.  It's looking very good these days.

Here's the current Senate chamber. It's in the part of the State House added on in the 20th century.


A Tiffany glass feature in the hall ceiling.


The House chamber is bigger but with similar marble features.




In the 18th century part of the State House are lovely columns,


arches,


and the inside of the dome.



The old Senate chamber has been restored to what it looked like when Washington resigned his commission.





The old House chamber was restored to the Victorian age decor.


The ceiling in there was gorgeous.


More to come on the Maryland State House.
