Gardens of Montpelier and Monticello

I thought I would do a separate post on the gardens of Montpelier and Monticello as I had taken so many photos which I thought deserving of their own space. Both gardens were beautifully maintained but also had a sort of wildness about them which was gorgeous. Monticello also had this fantastic mile-long vegetable garden which, in Jefferson’s time, would have provided food for the entire estate.
