Travel Haiku - Virginia Historic Garden Week


Virginia Historic Garden Week
we walk pass corridors
of American history

Virginia Historic Garden Week
more solid and concrete
now the meaning of freedom

Virginia Historic Garden Week
colourful as spring
these open houses

Virginia Historic Garden Week
any 18th century wine for us?
the connoisseur quips

Virginia Historic Garden Week
a concrete history laid bare
in black and white

Virginia Historic Garden Week
the nuance of history
in the shadows and lights

Billed as 'America's Largest Open House, ' Virginia's Historic Garden Week, April 18-25, boasts the oldest statewide house and garden tour in the country. More than 250 of the state's most beautiful and historic homes and gardens open to the public during the peak week of Virginia's springtime color. Many of the homes have family histories related to the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the Victorian Era, and will appeal to both architecture and history buffs. Locations include Tuckahoe Plantation, a boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson, and Mount Vernon, George Washington's expansive estate.
