Stone Crop Garden Break

We have been terribly busy in the studio and had to have a break to keep our sanity. We chose to go to one of the Garden Conservancy's 'Open Days' last weekend in Cold Spring, NY.  Twelve acres at 1,100 ft. elevation with Tudor buildings from the original estate, Stone Crop Gardens is in the Hudson Highlands about  an hour south of us. It is an educational facility where botanists train so there were lots of names and numbers but also a lot of beauty. See?
beautiful color!

beautiful patterns

water lilies

Magnolia. Umbrella type.
