Day Trip to Applewood


Last Sunday I was feeling lonely and at loose ends, so I decided to take myself out for the afternoon.

A friend had posted photos on Facebook of a visit she had made to Applewood Estate, and I realized this lovely place was less than an hour from my home.


It is the former home of the Mott Family, who have generously turned over the lovely house and grounds to a philanthropic organization, making it available to the general public.


A couple of hours spent wandering through the beautifully tended gardens, boosted my spirits, and gave my camera a good workout!


The hot, dry weather had left some of the flowers looking a little past their best, but the Hibiscus was clearly thriving.  I have never seen such enormous blooms.  One of the volunteers referred to them as ‘satellite dishes!’

    I love public gardens and the people who keep them looking so beautiful.
