Last year, Jenny and I spent a weekend at Prospect Hill Plantation B&B in Louisa, VA, about halfway between Richmond and Charlottesville. The manor house dates to the early 18th century and is surrounded by stately Oaks and rolling pastures, reminders of a once sprawling plantation. Strolling the grounds in the early evening before dinner, I came upon this garden cherub shushing a frog and felt I had intruded upon their private conversation. I politely snapped this photo and then moved on, careful not to disturb them again.
