TJ’s Place

Monticello is known as Jefferson's experiment in architectural design and engineering.    Unfortunately there’s no way my words and photographs can do it justice but the Monticello website has a fantastic virtual tour

That said I did take a few exterior photos; interiors are not permitted. 

A view of the South Portico shot from beside the Wash House at the end of the North Dependency.

Another shot from the north side along the gardens that wrap the lawn.

Anyone have a nickel?  Your standard South Portico shot, the same view depicted on the US nickel

The Vegetable Garden Terrace just to south side of the house.  Visible is the Vegetable Garden Pavilion a place Jefferson would use as a quiet retreat to read.

And I’ll end with a picture of Caroline and Terry sitting on a bench clearly in some deep conversation most likely spurred on by the guide book Terry has in her lap.
