Garden Pavilion at Monticello

There are those windows again that go all the way to the floor. I love the caption on this photo I found for you this evening: "FOR THE LOVE OF MONTICELLO Thank you, Thomas Jefferson, for understanding that contrary to modern American sentiment - size does NOT matter, and that a single room garden pavilion can bring you to your knees." Well said. 
Found here.

I have this great idea, why don't you come for a weekend visit and I'll take you to see Monticello, you would love it. Stunning setting and such a beautiful home with the best vegetable garden ever. Peas were Jefferson's favorite vegetable. T Jefferson and John Adams both died on the same day, July 4, 1826, so appropriate don't you think?
