Annapolis Part 2- September 15
Just had a few more pictures and thoughts to send out in regards to our tour of Annapolis. One picture is of a white mulberry tree which we saw in front of one of the older homes in the town. This mulberry is one of the few left in Annapolis. In the 1700s the town planted quite a few of these trees to feed the silkworm. This particular caterpillar would then provide the silk required for the town's clothing industry. Another picture posted here is for the benefit of some of us who need a bit of a refresher course on the history of the first Continental Congress. And finally I have posted here a picture of the governor's garden.
