Off to Williamsburg
After hopping off the bus, (well, it was really more of a hobble than a hop, but hopping sounds much better) we saw the Governor’s Palace and then proceeded to the Apothecary Shop where we listened to a talk about licorice root, phlox and other medicinal plants used by early Colonists. I couldn’t help but think of Julie Klassen and her wonderful book, The Apothecary’s Daughter.
May you find joy as you explore history with friends and family.
P.S. I have a brand-spanking-new website and I'd love to have you take a peek and let me know what you think. I have a newsletter out there that went out yesterday, but if you'd like to sign up for future newsletters, I'd be delighted.
P.P.S. The winner of The Carousel Painter is Becky. I'll be contacting you by e-mail for your mailing address. Thanks to all who entered. ~Judy
