Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

The Fells, NH

Another in a posting about a visit we made to New Hampshire to view foliage and visit with family.

A rainy Sunday afternoon we drove down to The Fells,  the summer home of John M. Hay who was one of Lincoln's secretaries and later was a Secretary of State for McKinley and then Teddy Roosevelt.

The home was lovely with gardens that one day I hope to visit in another season.  Here are a few photos for you viewing pleasure.




Walk down the driveway to the house.




No photos inside the house were allowed and this is the only one I took on the outside.

















A monster of a blueberry bush.


The walk back up the driveway.

HI Marcia You got great photographs of your walk around this lovely garden despite the wet condition. Love the rockery and pool, the autumn colours and leaves that have fallen. Interesting who lived there and to know how many presidents she served.
