Tower Hill Botanic Garden

Saturday was super nice out here and because my birthday was this weekend I decided we would check out Tower Hill Botanic Garden. I’ve never been before and it’s a nice place. I think we spent about 2-3 hours walking around.

We happened to be there on the day of the daffodil show. When we walked by the area was roped off for judging and we couldn’t go in to look, but we were told the check out the field of daffodils outside. The sheer number of daffodils was impressive. Walking around the property was enjoyable even though there weren’t a ton of trails to walk. I think their biggest loop trail was about 3 miles. There were many different gardens and most of the plants were labeled. I spent the day dreaming about how I’ll (probably never get around to) landscape my yard. I was disappointed that the moss steps were roped off, but they were pretty to look at. The birdhouse in the wildlife garden was my favorite stop. We saw lots of birds at their bird feeders, but the red-winged blackbird was most beautiful.

The one restaurant on the property is called Farmer and the Fork. It was all organic. I got their sandwich of the day, some turkey, cheese, and avocado concoction. It was very good. It came with house-made chips, which I love anywhere.

I would recommend checking this place out if you are around Boylston, Ma. Don’t expect to spend a whole day unless you are one who likes to read every single sign and hang out on every bench for a while taking in the views.

Here are a few pictures of our day. Enjoy!
