"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

A day at Caramoor...







First, we had a house tour of the amazing home that is Caramoor. The size and the antique treasures within are awesome. Do visit their website to see more on the inside of the house and the special current exhibits and concerts. During part of our house tour, a pianist and a violinist were practicing outside for this evening's concert. Photography is not allowed inside the house at Caramoor, or you know I would have been snapping away! After our house tour, we enjoyed our tea and then the tour of the gardens. Here are just a few things that caught my eye. Clicking on any photo will enlarge it.





































This is Cliff, our garden tour guide. We were so lucky to have him give us our tour as he is a master gardener and horticultural designer at Caramoor. He was so nice and enjoyed sharing his knowledge with us all. He is standing next to an amazing guitar made entirely of flowering plants! And guess what? He has a Corgi! How cool is that? If you ever have the chance, I highly recommend a visit to Caramoor. It is a very special place. CS ^..^
