Although I don't often check my email on my phone, as we approached Cape Cod last week, I decided to see if there was anything of interest, and indeed, there was. Anne from Artful Journey had sent me an email suggesting we stop at The Heritage Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts if we had time. Since we had a couple of hours to kill before we needed to line up for the ferry to Nantucket, we decided to explore. It was a fabulous suggestion. The gardens are beautiful and it's just the beginning of hydrangea season there. I'm a huge fan of hydrangeas, and need to take some photos of the beautiful hydrangea tree Matt planted in our front yard last fall as well as the more traditional ones that now grace the new landscaping. Even my huge hydrangea that has failed to bloom for three years is loaded with blossoms this year.
Here's an introductory photo from The Heritage Gardens, followed by five photos of the gorgeous hydrangeas. I have more photos from the garden that I'll share in later posts.
In addition to the beautiful gardens, they also have a lovely outdoor cafe where we had an excellent lunch, an art gallery, a carousel, and an antique car museum. Plenty to explore on another trip. I also found two more items for the Summer Scavenger Hunt. I can't think of a better way to have spent our time.
I'm linking this post to Sandi's Five in Five. Take five photos in five minutes; you have until the 25th of the month to link them up to Sandi's post, and you can check in there for more inspiration.
