Lexington Garden Tour

Today was hot, almost too hot for a Garden Tour, and dry, too dry also. Twelve generous families allowed a very large group of explorers. Because the gardens were spread over quite a large territory, it too quite a while to visit them all. All of the gardens were loved and groomed and very, very nice.

This large lovely yard had wood sculptures scattered among the large white pines. 
Huge Hostas inhabited the pine needle covered floor of the forest.


At the end of a very long curved drive which had yards of flower gardens along the way appeared a lovely house in front of which were gardens and a large pond with a bridge and a gazebo on an island. The grand-kids skate on the pond in the winter after grandma makes sure the ice is thick enough.

South of Lexington there's a marvelous, interesting house and studio belonging to an artist and his wife. Several of his sculptures were placed around the yard.


The final garden on the tour, like many of the others, had extensive water interests. Everyone was very kind; I enjoyed being allowed to explore what others have done with their up-north homes.
