Tower Hill Botanic Garden is New England's year-round botanic garden, a living museum of plants exquisite in every season. Several distinctive gardens arrange plants according to an overall Master Plan, that includes a Lawn Garden, Secret Garden, Systematic Garden, Cottage & Vegetable Garden, Wildlife Refuge Pond, Winter Garden, and more. Two conservatories--the Orangerie and the Limonaia--display non-hardy plants in winter, with blooming flowers in every season. Springtime brings more than a quarter million flowering bulbs, including a signature field of more than 25,000 daffodils.

Nice setting for a stroll through landscaped gardens, plantings, greenhouses and wooded trails. Many flowers still in bloom, but perhaps late Spring or early Summer would be more spectacular. Had lunch at the Twigs Cafe. Good selection of salads, sandwiches and flatbreads. Nothing really special...More
