The lemon lands safely next to the monument. Note the elaborate pen and ink decoration on the lemon!
Jackson thought of a lemon as a "rare treat ... enjoyed greatly whenever it could obtained from the enemy's camp." Renee and I learned this fascinating bit of trivia on our recent spring break trip to Lexington. We left lemons for Jackson and also learned of similar gifts of fruit left at the headstone of "Traveler," General Lee's beloved horse, buried outside of the Lee Chapel at W & L. Note to self: next trip, bring an apple for Traveler! I so thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Lexington three weeks ago to see college friends/roomates that I decided to return with my daughter who has a love for American history. Loved it once again...

No, I am not a television writer. But much like the reruns of our favorite shows (Grey's Anatomy) that we have watched the past few months, here are some of my favorite images from previous art exhibitions for you to view while I wonder about which direction my art will take me next.

I bought these really cute flats in Lexington. Check out Laura Brandon.
As we have done for the last nine years, 5 Duke women meet for 45 hours of conversation and friendship in North Carolina or Virginia. Our time in Lexington, VA this weekend was especially rich. As we said goodbye this morning, making prelimary plans for the next year, I wondered why we waited 20 years to start this tradition.
