    A good reminder concerning the gardens I have walked at Mount Vernon..

  2. Katie says:

    Beautiful pictures, decent descriptions about the gardens of Mount Vernon and insipid analysis of Washington s character Really only for a Washington or gardening enthusiast with some extra time on their hands.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    It s been a while since I read this one If I remember correctly, I learned a lot about how Washington s view of life was reflected in the way he managed his plantations and his gardens.
