The flower gardens at Monticello are absolutely amazing and literally buzz with life. Bees of all kinds, butterflies, and moths were busy as (you know…bees).
And when the work is done, it’s time to leave.
My knowledge and information is admittedly limited and largely based on the stories told by our tour guide. Please visit www.monticello.org to learn more and see the amazing gardens. Look at the page “In Bloom at Monticello” where you’ll find a calendar that you can set for any time of the year and then see all of the flowers that are blooming during that time. It’s a wonderful site to learn more about Jefferson and his home.
