Prestwould windowsill

This is a beautiful stone windowsill at Prestwould in Mecklenberg County, Va.  No vases here (or at least none visitors were allowed to touch) so my cousin Kate held this little bouquet of wildflowers in her hand. Included are clover, buttercups, and a little pink weed I couldn't identify.  I love thinking Lady Jean Skipwith, the 18th and early 19th century gardener who lived here, who lived here, knew this weed as well as I know my chickweeds.
