Planting Fields

On Tuesdays our hosts had their "busy day" which means we went exploring. The first suggestion was to visit Old Westbury Gardens - especially made attractive by the free ticket our hosts had! We pulled in to the drive in front of the closed gates and hailed the gardener. He told us the gardens are closed Tuesdays - but - we could go to another garden. I asked him the name, pulled out the GPS thingy and off we went.
Planting Fields Arboretum is an amazing place. It is a maintained old estate with huge gardens and paths. Plants are flowering often and the greenhouse has a children's activity which has the children searching each section.
This picture is one of the greenhouse areas.
