|The green house and upper garden wall at Mt Vernon|
Way back in 1977 or 1978, my Grandmother and I visited Mt Vernon. Neither of us had been to Washington DC, she wanted to go, and I was willing to drive. I remember the greenhouse and gardens above. I bought a book in the gift shop in the end of the greenhouse building - it is likely still in the collection in the other house.
December is a pretty time to visit Mt Vernon. The light is warm, highlighting the brick and red tile roofs. The shadow and contrast accentuate the lines and shape.
