Gardeners Touch

 Yesterday, we spent a wonderful afternoon in yet another Hudson Valley gem – the Stonecrop Gardens; one of my 2015 Summer Bucket list items – exploring secret gardens.

Stonecrop GardensStonecrop was the home of Anne & Frank Cabot and became a public garden in 1992.  It is located in the Mid-Hudson valley region, in the town of Cold  Spring, NY.  It’s 12 acres comprise of several types of gardens including woodland, water, cliff rock and an English-style flower garden, to name a few.  The history of the garden is quite interesting, so be sure to check out their website.

As we entered the main drive, we were greeted with the most breathtaking view, at its 1,100 foot elevation.

 The garden is also home to The Therapeutic Equestrian Center, which provides therapeutic and recreations riding for physically and developmentally disabled children and adults.
