I can only hope you sense the joy I felt strolling through the Heritage Museum & Gardens on Cape Cod, in Sandwich, Massachusetts. It is amazing to me that one can grow up in an area and not know about such beauty just an hour away from where we use to live. Mutual friends Frank and Sue, led Judy to this discovery and explained that it was a nice take and that it was! The day was overcast and the conditions could have not been better for photographing. Believe it or not it was actually a little chilly! One hundred acres perfectly manicured and displays of grandeur no matter where one gazed. Comfortable shoes a must! The beauty is just intoxicating here and the bees plumped by all the sweet nectar. 
There was also an antique car exhibit with some of the finest specimens we have ever seen, along with a Norman Rockwell exhibit in the art museum! How much beauty can one possibly take in in one single day? I may have to go back! 
Very little editing on these photos except for some cropping, straight out of the camera (SOOC)! 





Pin It!

Breathtaking beauty, I wanted to be in the middle of those flowers soaking up all of GOD's beauty.
Your SOOC shots, one can melt into the center of those flowers and get lost.

Oh my I loved this stroll through the gardens! That main entrance is so gorgeous, and the lilies and the gates! I know what you mean about little gems right where you live - I am always amazed by the things I continue to find around us.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, Rosemary! I also love the change to your blog header. I tried to change mine, but Blogger says I have to buy more space. Boo. Anyway, sounds like you had a wonderful afternoon there.

That is a lovely share. That waterfall and the gates, so nice. Those hydrangeas are an absolute favorite. They do not grow well for me. great pics.

Rosemary, this looks wonderful. I lived in MA for almost 10 years, and never heard of the until now. What a place to be, with a camera! Thank you for taking us along.
Happy Monday to you!
