Saturday at the Governor's Garden

On Saturday evening we had an opportunity to visit the “Governor’s Garden” here in town. Work began on the garden behind the Governor’s Mansion in 1930 as a Works Progress Administration (WPA) project. The garden features beautiful cut limestone walls and this wonderful structure.

The garden is always filled with beautiful plants like this Solomon's Seal (too bad all the flowers were already gone, but what wonderful foliage!).

and this lovely Oak Leaf Hydrangea.....

It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday evening.
