Morning Meanderings.......

Imagine the fantastic secret garden that goes along with this entrance! I mean, this isn't your normal run of the mill trellis here. This place is incredible and only seeing it in person can do it justice. Just look at the details on the pillars!

Imagine having your morning cup of coffee or tea in this beautiful garden. It's so gorgeous and the only thing that would make it prettier is if the fountain in the middle there was on!

I could actually see myself sitting in these seats, reading my book and gazing out over the lawn, watching the children play. Oh, wouldn't that be something!!

That of course, is if I could pull myself away from my glorious bedroom in this mansion!

And this is just one of the "houses" on this property! It's incredible! I can't wait to go back and take some more pictures in the fall. Imagine what it looks like with a blanket of snow covering it all. The mansion is actually a museum now so we are going to go back in the fall and take a tour. I love old houses, homes, like this. I can't wait to see the inside.
Oh if only the walls could talk!!!


  1. What a gorgeous place! Loved the stone seats next to the windows...perfect for curling up with a good book! Hey, we can always dream, right?

  2. There was no one there that Sunday. I told the kids I'm bringing a book and hiding there some time. And I warned them not to come looking for me.


So, whatcha thinkin?
