Mount Vernon’s new garden

New from this year at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate is the revamped Upper Garden. The difference between the old version and this new one is that this newest one shows how George Washington the man lived and not about George Washington-the myth. The other garden, the Lower Garden always shows an idealized Colonial Revival fruit and vegetable garden.
