Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Hillwood Gardens

Life is getting a bit crazy with things to attend to in preparation for our move to New Hampshire next month.  Before that move we travel to Buffalo to deliver some items to daughter Sarah and see their new house.  When we return we'll likely be in quarantine for two weeks and will use that time to do the serious packing and staging for the movers on July 14th.

So I'm going back in time to repost blogs from my past.  I'll still be reading your comments.
This one appeared one year ago today.


I wrote about my visit to Hillwood a couple of days ago.  Scroll down to see it.

The gardens there are lovely.  If we'd timed our visit right we may have seen the azaleas in bloom.  But they were gone.

Here is the Japanese Garden.






And here is the Russian garden house, a dacha (?).  This was the only spot where an azalea was blooming still.

Love those red leaves.

The question you asked about the choir loft: it's off to the side of the church.

Hi Marcia! A move to another state! Man, I can relate! Hope all is going well, all things considered. I'm back to blogging myself after a nine month hiatus. Talk soon.

I missed seeing that you’re moving to New Hampshire. Oh wow! What a time to have to do this.
