I have several posts about spring in Colonial Williamsburg headed your way (finally), but this first one is simply a photo diary of the gardens. While Christmas has always been my favorite time to visit Williamsburg, spring might be a close second — particularly during a spring like we’ve had this year, where the temperature has rarely topped 80. We were there in late April and, yet, the early spring flowers were still putting on a show. The gardeners mentioned that, typically, they’re already beginning to swap out the cooler weather flowers for heat-loving summer flowers at this point, but they’ve been hanging on. And, as someone who loves the abundant, tall blooms of foxglove and snapdragons, I was in heaven.
Spring in Colonial Williamsburg
There are gardens throughout the entire village, but perhaps the most impressive are the gardens surrounding the Governor’s Palace. The brilliant colors, impeccably manicured boxwoods, and perfectly tended rows are almost too much to believe. There’s inspiration around every corner — this has me lining up an annual trip to take in the beauty that is spring in Colonial Williamsburg. Who’s in with me next year?
I was in Colonial Williamsburg for a two-day event with Benjamin Moore and the Williamsburg Brand. I’ll have more to share about the homes we toured and an entire post dedicated to the impressive 1695 designer-in-residence Nelson Galt house, which I believe is open to the public on July 4! I’ll also share a post about our stay at the Williamsburg Inn, seriously a dream property.
