George Washington's Garden

I spent 4th of July at the well-preserved historic Mount Vernon Estate, and though the day was too hot for real enjoyment to be had, I did take a quick stroll through the gardens. A pollinator's dream, there were an eye-popping array of sun perennials, from all sorts of coneflowers to zinnias and phlox. It was quite overwhelming actually, and I can't imagine how much maintenance a garden of this size must require. Hopefully, I will be able to spend more time exploring the grounds and gardens next time.
