Garden in the Woods

The Meadow
Garden in the Woods in Framingham, Massachusetts is home to the New England Wildflower Society. The Society is dedicated to the preservation and conservation of native New England plants.

My friend, Teague, and I spent an hour or so roaming the paths of this living museum. Each turn of the trail offered a different gallery: a lily pond, a meadow where I instantly identified goldenrod, and a meandering brook. For a needed rest or place to meditate log benches were scattered through the preserve.

I think a trip back in the Fall (when the goldenrod has passed) to sit and sketch will be in order.
