  1. Quakers always loved their gardens!
    I just finished a book on the history of early Nantucket, which had a chapter on Quaker gardens. Beautiful photos !

  2. Mary Ann has such a gentle manner. I enjoyed the photo of her bending to the flowers. She looks so pretty among those beautiful blooms.. These photos were a feast for the eyes. thank you!!

  3. We love rhododendrons here as well and have several in our garden, but they haven’t flowered yet – usually May is when we expect them, although most plants are a lot earlier this year.
