Ephemeral

Our son Chris who graduated college in December started his first job as a professional one month ago.  He's happy, feeling confident and now wants to spend more time with us!  He suggested that the 3 of us take an overnight trip last weekend.  We decided to go to the Winchester area where it's pretty and there's lots of history.  This was our second trip to the Virginia Arboretum.  This was the Blandy Farm from the early 1900s, where the slave "quarters" have been converted into labs for the University of Virginia.

The weekend weather was very cold-air temperature was 24 and with March winds, it felt like the teens.  Oh, but it was so pretty!

The sign by the beautiful water and rock areas read "Ephemeral Pools", which only last a short time.  The memory of the Virginia Arboretum will last a long time.
