Royal Governor's Palace, Williamsburg, Virginia

Royal Governor's Palace, Williamsburg, Virginia

The Governor's Palace 1710-1715
The Palace and its dependencies, preeminent among notable estates in colonial America, have been rebuilt on original foundations.  Many of the rooms in the Palace are of special interest because of the collection of antique furniture, paintings and other furnishings that have been chosen to conform with inventories of royal governors.  The gardens are considered more typical of formal eighteenth century English gardens than any others in America

The garden of colonial Williamsburg's Governors Palace alive with the colors of Spring.  From late winter to mid-Fall the state of Virginia is blooming with a variety of Nature's color and texture.

I have a weakness for linen cards and so I like the first card.

Remember Sunday Stamps at!
