fairfax county va: Kings Park-Standing the Test of Time in Springfield VA - 02/11/10 10:31 PM
It isn't hard to figure out what the developer of the first Kings Park was planning when they laid out the plan for the community and the homes. With one look at the street names Thames, Victoria, Trafalgar and Cromwell among others you might think you have made a trip back to England. Then when you add the names of the five original models; King, Queen, Princess, Duke and Duchess, you realize absolutely there is a royal connection!
Our family bought our very first home in Kings Park in 1981. Having just returned from five years overseas we were anxious to … (5 comments)

fairfax county va: Speechless Sunday-The Long Walkway to the Dining Hall - 01/03/10 10:42 AM

Prior to closing in 2002 this was one of the walkways that inmates used to get from the barracks to the dining hall and other prison buildings at  the former reformatory.
The brick in many of the buildings were created and fired in a kiln on site.  Now the buildings are used as part of the Lorton Workhouse Arts Center and are a great place to view local artists at work.

fairfax county va: Do You Sometimes Feel Like Your Just Standing Still? - 12/21/09 08:32 AM
If you live in Northern Virginia and you are sitting still then it could be because we have lots of traffic.  In fact a recent study shows a significant portion of the Northern Virginia area ranks in the top 25 locales for traffic.
# 7-Washington, D.C#9-Alexandria, Va#13-Fairfax County, Va#22-Arlington, Va
With the completion of the Springfield Interchange and the Wilson Bridge Project drivers were expecting to see significant improvement in their commute times.  However now the Tyson's Corner improvements, expansion of the Fairfax County Parkway and HOT lanes have slowed commuters down again.
 You don't have to be stuck in traffic … (10 comments)

fairfax county va: Wordless Wednesday-A Peaceful Walk on a Winters Day - 12/15/09 10:31 PM

Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge in Fairfax County is a 2200 acre established as a habitat for bald eagles in 1969.  During the spring and summer bird watchers by the thousands come and spend time looking for eagles, blue herons and over 200 species of birds.In the winter time it is a great place to walk and enjoy solitude.  The shoreline looks out across the Potomac River and Belmont Bay. The refuge is located just a few miles from Lorton and Fort Belvoir.When I took this photo I started humming the Mama's and Papa's song "On A Winters Day"
"All the leaves are … (14 comments)

fairfax county va: Nalls Produce and Nursery-A Rooster Crows in Suburbia - 07/30/09 07:15 AM
Less than a mile from the gates of Fort Belvoir and the 5300 homes that make up Kingstowne, you can hear a rooster crow announcing a new day at Nalls Produce and Nursery.  Started as a way for the Nalls family to sell off some of the extra produce from their family garden today Nalls Produce and Nursery is a 5th generation roadside market in Alexandria, VA.
As you approach Nalls Produce on Beluah Street you can't help but be drawn in by the display of fresh flowers and vegetables out front.  Once you've pulled into the parking lot and start … (8 comments)

fairfax county va: Clifton VA-History and Mystery All in One Historic Town - 07/26/09 01:10 PM
Driving into the small town of Clifton VA you expect to find ladies in long skirts shielding their faces with parasols and you might during historic Clifton Day but the rest of the time you find a great place to live, eat and shop.  With only 200 residents within the town boundaries it is smaller than most planned communities in Fairfax County.
As with most of Northern Virginia, Clifton was the scene of numerous battles during the civil war and due to the railroad was a strategic location for the Union Army to set up camp.  After the civil war the town … (5 comments)

fairfax county va: Wordless Wednesday-Get Out Your Butter Churn - 06/17/09 01:20 PM
I ran across this field of buttercups on Fort Belvoir while headed to an appointment.  They reminded me of when we used to pick them as children and it was a make you smile moment.

fairfax county va: Do You Know What Might Be Built on the Lot Behind Your House? - 06/15/09 11:54 AM
One of the many questions that buyers have when buying their home is "what is going on in the empty land behind my house?"  With many Northern Virginia development plans on hold, tracts of land sitting empty may give buyers the impression that the woods they see today will always be there.
Though it would be impossible to keep up with all of the changes in development in an area it does make sense to look at the master plan of the area where you are considering buying to see what might be coming.   Not only may the wooded lot be … (6 comments)

fairfax county va: Fresh Food Delivered to Your Door-Community Supported Agriculture - 06/03/09 05:28 AM
During the spring and summer in Northern Virginia most residents think that the local farmers market are the only way to enjoy great produce and baked goods.However for some of us we know there is a way to have farm fresh produce, eggs, meat, cheese, meet and even organic wine delivered to our door or a convenient pick up spot.  For those who aren't familiar with the term Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) it is a way for anyone to support local farmers by buying directly from a farmer.  You buy a "share" of the farm and in return every week a … (14 comments)

fairfax county va: Keep the Earth Happy-Think Creatively About Recycling - 04/22/09 02:16 AM
Our family has always been good about recycling. In fact we have shared trash service with neighbors, as we couldn’t fill one of those large bins that all of the local trash services want you to have. Big, bulky and ugly are the only way to describe them but they do make good rain barrels (but that is another blog.)
So as we continue to read more and more about the impact that trash is having on the environment it reminded me of some of the ways that we have been creative when it came to dealing with recyclables. My daughter … (8 comments)

fairfax county va: Earth Day-A Focus on the Three “R’s” - 04/19/09 09:57 AM
This week with Earth Day falling on Wednesday provides everyone the opportunity to take a closer look at the three "R's"; Recycle, Reuse and Reduce in their homes and communities.  To help celebrate the week I've decided to highlight places, homes or projects in my area where I've seen some great examples of the three "R's and share them with you.  Some may be "recycled" posts, which seems appropriate given the theme of the week.
My first highlight of the week is the Lorton Workhouse Arts Center.  For over 100 years Lorton was an area that most residents of Northern Virginia … (2 comments)

fairfax county va: Fairfax Station VA-The Red Cross Was Born Here - 02/20/09 01:52 PM
We see the signs around Virginia that say "George Washington Slept Here" but unless you take a step often the beaten path you won't find some of the other signs of famous faces in history. One of those signs is hidden in Fairfax Station at the St. Mary of Sorrows Church just off of Route 123.
St Mary of Sorrows Church was built from 1858-1860 with lumber milled locally by railroad workers living in the area. The only item that was purchased to complete the church was the bell installed in the tower. As the battles of the civil war moved … (4 comments)
