Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday and time for T again.
Today I thought I would share the final set of photos from trip number 1 to Bedrock Gardens in Lee, New Hampshire. It's more exciting than another week of yard work photos. Smile.
My beach walking friend and I decided to join the gardens for the season so we could walk here every week, rather than the beach. As some of you read last Thursday, the beach charges $15 per day during the summer to park (it is free off season and a beach season pass is $175.00), whereas we could get a season pass to the gardens for $35. It was a no brainer decision, and let's face it, walking around beautiful gardens is always a wonderful thing to do.
According to the garden's website, the 37 acres of land where the gardens are located was originally an old fashion New England dairy farm. The original house was built in the 1700's (unconfirmed at 1740), with a barn built in 1874. The land stopped use as a dairy farm in 1957 and fell into disrepair. The family that owned the land sold it to the present owners in 1980 for a handshake. (And according to the website, the original owner family still lives in adjacent property.) These new owners turned this property into this great non-profit garden.
The gardens opened last week for the season, and my walking friend and I went on opening day. I thought I would share a few more photos from my walk the other morning at Bedrock Gardens. I also posted some photos on Bedrock Gardens Post 1 and Bedrock Gardens post 2, so if you haven't seen them and would want to see more, you can click and go back.
I have a lot of photos today, and you can flip through as fast or as slow as your interested, depending how big your T cup of chosen drink is.
The area in today's post is a little more formal than the wooded part that I posted the other day. The tulips in this area looked great. On top of each post in this next photo are some funny little people made of recycled gears and other other metal pieces. I will share the few photos I took of those some other time, because as you can see, there are a lot of them.
