Gardens & Sights of Waterford, VA

Waterford, VA, is a tiny historical town in western Loudoun County, about 90 minutes from Washington, DC.  The town consists of just a few streets, a post office, an old mill, schoolhouse, and a few dozen houses built in the 18th and 19th century, now lovingly cared for by their current owners.

This weekend I was lucky enough to have access to some of the houses and gardens in a photography class I took with my sister for a birthday present.  I still don’t know what 90% of the functions do on my camera, but here are some of my better shots:

    Reminds me of my camera. You did a beautiful job with the pictures. Thank you. Now I want to get off my old duff and work in my garden.

    • Thanks, Carol. I think that gardeners should get the entire month of May off of work to keep up with gardening. I’d put in some extra hours in January and August in return.

  2. Beautiful photos, thank you! No need to apologize for not knowing everything there is to know about your camera — you can pronounce yourself an expert with these lovelies. Did you meet some of the gardeners who care so much for their plots? Just grand. Again, thank you!

  3. Thanks so much! We did meet a couple of the homeowners, and some of them just sort of went about their business while we took pictures and didn’t approach us. It felt a little weird wandering around on other people’s property. The folks who live out there are definitely an eclectic bunch.
