Back in mid-June of 2013, which would have been a week before I began cancer treatment, we visited Long Hill. It's a Trustees of Reservations property - they manage many of our favorite outdoor places in Massachusetts. Today we were back in that neck of the woods so we returned.
It's a former private estate and has lovely, peaceful gardens. This visit a whole different set of plants were in bloom, especially the Forget-me-nots and the peonies.
I've put it on my calendar to make regular visits through the summer so we can see different blooms each time.
Even our grumpy almost-teenager enjoyed the visit.
If you want to see photos from our previous visit, they are here. It was Father's Day 2013.
